Tunbridge Wells & Kent

WELCOME TO

the Tunbridge Wells branch

of the English-Speaking Union

As a member of the ESU you can take part in our social, educational and cultural programmes and attend events both in the UK and abroad. Local fundraisers and competition heats will enable you to support young people in your community.

As a UK member you receive a number of further benefits. These include priority access to Dartmouth House, our beautiful London Headquarters, regular e-news updates, a copy of our Members’ magazine and invitations to special events.

Proximity to London enables members of the ESU Tunbridge Wells Branch to enjoy the facilities of the ESU’s Headquarters, Dartmouth House in London. They are also very active in supporting the UK Public Speaking Competition.

I look forward to welcoming you into the ESU family!

Tunbridge Wells

Meet the Chairman

A warm welcome to the Tunbridge Wells Branch of the English-Speaking Union!

The town of Tunbridge Wells (officially ‘Royal’ Tunbridge Wells!) is located in a part of the High Weald of Kent designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It became famous as a spa town during the 17th century Restoration period of the monarchy under Charles II.

Our proximity to London enables members to enjoy the facilities on offer at the ESU Headquarters at Dartmouth House. We are also very active locally, particularly with regard to the organisation of the heats of the UK Public Speaking Competition which, together with the Schools' Mace, Performing Shakespeare and the mentor-led Discover Your Voice schools’ workshops, lie at the core of the educational aims of the ESU.

So, if you are passionate about helping to equip the young with the life skills and confidence they so need in today's world, please get in touch. You will be making a real difference to your local community, as well as joining a worldwide organisation dedicated to improving the life chances of young people everywhere.

We look forward to welcoming you to our branch!
