Situated in the famous Pantiles area of the spa town of Tunbridge Wells, in the south east, summer Jazz evenings have arrived – every Thursday from 7.30pm and Sunday afternoons at 3pm throughout the month of August.
The evenings are funded by the Association of Pantiles Traders and local restaurants and bars, so it’s only £2 requested donation to soak up the spa town atmosphere and enjoy fabulous music. I can feel myself unwinding already.
I love the variety of restaurantes – Mediterranean, Italian, Indian, Mexican and English. Plus cafes and pubs. Tables spill out onto the pavement so it is easy to hear the music from almost anywhere. There’s something for everyone on the Pantiles and the atmosphere is perfect.
And, of course, the music. Great musicians such as Hard Lines, performing their favourite Jazz Funk sounds, The Cuban Violets, with music from Latin America, and The Chillbillies featuring Jazz, Soul and Blues brought the Pantiles to life. Plus Protect the Beat and the Sue Rivers Quartet – keep us tapping our toes and sipping wine all evening.
Thursday 7th August – Over the Edge
Thursday 14th August – Hard Lines
Thursday 21st August – Dave O’Higgins Quartet
Thursday 28th August – Protect the Beat
Thursday 4th September – Sue Rivers Quartet
And because I love this area so much, I can’t resist mentioning …
Perfectly positioned in The Pantiles lies a few steps away and you can stay in The Pantiles Place, beautifully decorated and very comfortable.
Lower Pantiles Place is also an elegant well appointed holiday apartment.
Happy summer holidays!
