Electric Lantern Festival of the Arts | Tunbridge Wells

An arts festival for the whole community. Tues 11th to Sun 16th Sept 2012

Now in its second year, the Electric Lantern Festival of the Arts 2012 returns to Tunbridge Wells in September with an entirely original community story-telling experience.

As the summer of 2012 was so full of events, the Festival has decided to take a slightly different tack this year. Rather than the usual exhibitions – though those are still happening – the ELF has been working with writers and authors in Tunbridge Wells to create an unprecedented narrative experience in the AudiToury Wells Read project.

Also, returning to its spiritual home at Trinity Theatre and Arts Centre, ELF is taking over Trinity’s gallery between 11th and 16th September*, providing wall-space for local artists, photographers, illustrators and designers.

*Please be aware, Sun 16th is the last day of the exhibition, so not all works will be on display the whole day.
