  • What are bar spaces? These pitches are available at all Tunbridge Wells events. Two double doors lead directly from this area into the main hall. The area consists of the function room bar (which will be closed at all times) and has double doors leading from the hotel at one end and double doors going directly into the function room at the other end. The double doors leading from the hotel do not tend to be where customers enter, you may get a few customers enter this way but the majority of customers enter via the street side entrance located in the main function room and will enter the bar area via the double doors from the function room. The bar area gets slightly less footfall to the main hall and is therefore available this year at a discounted price.

  • How much do the bar spaces cost? October: £35, November: £40, December £45
