History Talk: Winter in Old Tunbridge Wells

Calverley Grounds

Mon 10th Dec

7.00 pm

A seasonal journey through historical photographs from Victorian times to the 1950s with local history expert Dr Ian Beavis of Tunbridge Wells Museum & Art Gallery. This pictorial trip through time will explore winters of the past, using images from the extensive photographic collection of the Museum, alongside some snowy souvenir postcards.

Dr Beavis is considered one of the greatest living experts on the history of Tunbridge Wells, and features regularly in the ‘Top 50 Reasons to Love Tunbridge Wells’.

The collections of Tunbridge Wells Museum & Art Gallery tell the special story of the Borough of Tunbridge Wells through photographs, art, natural history, archaeology, craft, toys and so much more. It is a fascinating tale beginning with the discovery of the spa waters in 1606, eventually giving birth to the Georgian ‘den of iniquity’ which would become the byword for Victorian respectability. The collection, which began in 1885 when the ‘Literary and Scientific Society’ began displaying their collections on The Pantiles, tells the story of Kent’s spa town – from the decadence of the Georgian manor house to the Spartan lifestyle of the humble hop-picker.

The Best of December
Pick of the Month

My top event for December is also one of the last events of the year. This is the fifth edition of Hug-Many, a New Year's Eve party on the Pantiles which features live music, a DJ, fireworks and that ever-so Tunbridge Wells tradition, a piper. It looks like a lot of fun, I must go one year!
