L&L 2015: August 28th–31st. All done for another year *sad face*. Thanks for coming to Local & Live!

Help us crowd-fund this year’s Local & Live Music Festival

Despite our best efforts we have not secured a sole headline sponsor or sizeable grant for this year’s event, leaving it very financially vulnerable. However if we can achieve 2000 – 3000 pre orders for this year’s Festival compilation CD we can effectively cover most of our costs for staging this year’s event.

We need volunteers!

Local & Live is a free event for the community of Tunbridge Wells, Kent and beyond for people of all ages. Local & Live only happens with the support and sponsorship of local businesses, our amazing volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to help keep the event running smoothly and our Local & Live Angels. If you would like to be involved as a volunteer, to sponsor or advertise at the event, please contact us today.

Local & Live 2015 is coming!

Join us for our 10th year!

Local & Live 2015 is on its way and this August bank holiday is Local & Live’s 10th year. Last year we moved the main stage to Calverley Grounds. Its beautiful location created a fantastic central point to the event, opening up the main stage to many more thousands of people. Over the weekend well over 200 local acts comprising 400 musicians entertained in 11 venues across the town.

2015 will see the festival grow again. A second acoustic stage will be added to Calverley Grounds and further venues have been added to the fringe festival, covering some of the town’s key venues and cafes, including an expanded fringe on the Bank Holiday Monday.

Fringe details available!

11th August 2015: All the fringe lineups are now listed. Please note that these are subject to change; keep your eye on the website for updates!

The fringe venues are:

The Beau Nash, The Trading Post, The Bedford, Sankeys, Camden Quarter, The Prince Of Wales, The Royal Oak, The Forum, Cassidy’s, Souper Juice, No.9 Smokehouse Bar, an outdoor stage in the garden at Trinity Theatre,  and The Grey Lady.

Thank you again

Tunbridge Wells’ premier festival happens with the support and assistance of many but in particular: our sponsors, Tunbridge Wells Borough Council, the Friends of Calverley Grounds, the Local & Live Angels and of course the very talented musicians!

See you there!
