What we're looking for

We offer local bands support slots on touring shows, as well as the chance for local bands to play their first headline gigs if they can bring a decent sized crowd to the venue. We also provide work experience for people who want to learn about the music industry, events management, sound engineering etc and we work with local colleges to put on college band nights, giving students their first taste of playing in a proper venue. 

About us

The Forum is located in Tunbridge Wells, with frequent trains in and out of London from Tunbridge Wells Station, a 5 minute walk from the venue. Open 3-4 nights a week, we put on many genres of music from hip-hop, dance and pop to heavy metal, alternative rock and indie. We have a strong focus on upcoming bands who tend to pass through the venue, and we fully believe in supporting your local music scene

How to get a gig

Artists wishing to play The Forum should email with a link to their social media, a link to their music and how many people they would be able to bring to a gig. Please also specify if you're looking for a headline gig or to be put on as a support band for a bigger show.
