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.

We want as many students as possible to visit the theatre. That’s why we’ll always negotiate with promoters to get you the best possible price. 

What’s more, your group outing to the theatre doesn’t end with your performance. We organise theatre tours – onstage and backstage – as well as educational workshops. We’re also able to arrange a post-show Q&A session with cast and crew.

Simply contact our Creative Learning Manager Bethan Minter at bethan.minter@tunbridgewells.gov.uk or 01892 554221 for details.

Details of 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 parking on London Road less than 5 minutes away. If your booking is for a group of over 15, we provide seating plans rather than printed tickets. 

While we’re not able to provide lunch for your school or group booking, we do have space for up to 40 children to eat – although availability varies depending on the show you’re seeing. 

  

Engaging with Students in the Community

We’re proud to offer work experience and placements for young people interested in pursuing a career in the arts. We’re also collaborating on a number of community projects that involving students from the local area. 

We don’t want art and theatre to only be accessible to a privileged few. That’s why we’re working with Trinity Youth Theatre to deliver a subsidised drama club for young people, starting with those who live in the Sherwood Estate. We’re aiming to expand the programme to other local areas later this year. 

We’re also keen to draw on local talent to enrich the theatre itself. At the end of last year, we were delighted to display an advent installation created by Key Stage 2 students from 14 primary schools within the Borough of Tunbridge Wells. Nearly 700 students participated in our drawing workshops during October – run in collaboration with local artist Matt Syms – while an additional 500 students helped create the advent boxes the artwork was displayed in. 

The Christmas decorations that adorned our foyer and bar area were created by 2 local secondary schools: Kent Collective Pembury and Mascalls Academy Paddock Wood. This project enabled us to connect with around 300 secondary school students.
