The Parade's History

On the lower part of Camden Road, beyond the traffic lights, there are no Christmas lights so a group of local people (already involved in putting on the community play'The Vanishing Elephant' ) got together to organise a parade of light from the town centre down the full length of Camden Road. Combining with an earlier Chinese New Year parade it has become an annual event organised by the community group CREATE.

Over the last few years our long-running grant was axed so we are now funding the parade ourselves with the support of generous companies and people like you.

What started as a fundraising event for a community theatre production has now become a staple part of the Tunbridge Wells community events calendar.
