Assembly Hall Theatre

Schools & Groups

Would you like to give students at your school an unforgettable experience? Bring them to an Assembly Hall Theatre production and you’ll give them access to culture and entertainment to inspire and educate.

What’s more, your group outing to the theatre doesn’t end with your performance. We can provide theatre tours as well as educational workshops to further enrich your visit. Many workshops can also be provided at your school or venue.  View our Cultural Learning Menu here to see all we have to offer.

Simply contact our groups team on GroupBookings@tunbridgewells.gov.uk for more details.

About Your Visit

Our aim is to make your school or group visit as smooth and enjoyable as possible. That’s why we recommend that you arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the start of the performance, to ensure that there’s plenty of time for everyone to find their seats.

There’s plenty of space outside the theatre for the coach to drop off and pick up, with bus and coach parking on London Road less than 5 minutes away. Unfortunately busses cannot be parked on Crescent road.

The larger toilets can be found in the Lower Foyer area of the theatre (past the box office desk), which we recommend for the use of large groups. We do not have cloakroom facilities to store bags and coats, and recommend these are kept on your person.

Unless requested otherwise, Group and School tickets will be sent electronically. E-tickets are free of charge and can be shown on a phone screen or printed.

For your convenience we provide seating plans for your booking, highlighting where your group will be seated in the auditorium. Seating plans will be sent via email to the primary contact when numbers are confirmed.

We can provide a copy of our public liability insurance on request. Additionally we can provide you with a copy of our venue’s risk assessment on request. This is for reference only and should not be used as your primary risk assessment for your visit.

For more information about your visit, please contact our groups team on GroupBookings@TunbridgeWells.gov.uk
