Two young ladies working in Tunbridge Wells' old High Street are bringing retailers and businesses together this Christmas with an exclusive shopping evening on Thursday 5th December.
Sophie Brown from Bod & Ted and Jo Wicker from Payne & Son are the faces behind the new Tunbridge Wells High Street Facebook page. (And new twitter account @TWellsHighSt).
Tired of having the High Street constantly overlooked when it comes to town events, these ladies have come together to help get the message out there that the old High Street is still a great shopping destination. With over a hundred businesses including fashion boutiques and cafes, jewellers and estate agents, this fabulous street deserves better recognition. This is the first High Street/Chapel Place collaboration in years, and Sophie, Jo and Ron (Howard Cundey) have been blown away by the response and enthusiasm from the businesses.
Helping to raise money for Howard Cundey Estate Agents's named charity, the Kent Sussex Surrey Air Ambulance, is a registered charity established to relieve sick and injured people in South East England and surrounding areas by providing a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS). Responding swiftly to 999 calls, the Air Ambulance can deliver a highly skilled team of Specialist Doctors and Critical Care Paramedics to the patient at the scene.
The evening will boast festive entertainment, special offers and promotions will be in abundance in many outlets so be sure to check out the Tunbridge Wells High Street Facebook page for full listings. Competitions, fancy dress, and a raffle to win prizes which are being donated by the some of the shops and businesses themselves. There'll be prizes for foodies, beauty lovers, children, the men in your life…... there really is something for everyone. The Tunbridge Wells Choral Society will be singing carols along the High Street from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. And the Town Crier will also be found out and about on the evening. You may even spy Father Christmas himself lurking in amongst the shoppers checking out who's being naughty or nice.
There will be special offers, discounts and promotions being run in many outlets so be sure to check out the Tunbridge Wells High Street Facebook page for full listings.
Mince pies, mulled wine and chestnuts roasting on an open fire are sure to make you feel festive and merry. And with the Christmas Road Train in full operation by then, there's no excuse to not pop down and see what's occurring.
So it's Ho Ho Ho on Thursday 5th December from 5.30pm till late, when over 60 shops will be open to offer you the best in High Street shopping.
