Founded two decades ago, the Tunbridge Wells International Music Festival is an annual music festival showcasing classical and other related forms of music performed live by different bodies in the Tunbridge Wells area, and also introduces notable international artists and ensembles to audiences both young and old.

See details of our 2024 concert season below. And Join our mailing list to be the first to hear further details.

We are currently seeking to expand, to reach more venues and a wider audience, particularly those disadvantaged by difficulties accessing music tuition, bringing together different interest groups in the area to remove barriers to the experience of high quality music for everyone.
