The Remarkable Characters of Tunbridge Wells Exhibition features a selection of photographs by Mark Wilkinson and interviews written by Anne Wagstaff, celebrating local inspiring characters, from a Gold medal winner to former M16 agent. The exhibition will take place at Woods Restaurant, on the picturesque Georgian promenade of shops and restaurants ‘The Pantiles’.

The exhibition is free to enter, and guests can enjoy a browse, or take in the photography and stories whilst enjoying the all-day menu, tea and cakes, or the famous Woods brunch.

The book ‘The Remarkable Characters of Tunbridge Wells’ is a collection of all 50 characters portraits accompanied by their unique stories. Available at select stockist in Tunbridge Wells, as well as online here, all proceeds from the book will be donated to Fegans, giving us a wonderful opportunity to help more children and families in the South East.

Discover the wonder of all the Remarkable Characters featured, from real life super heroes (we have our own) to tales of Hollywood glamour and ex-spies. The exhibition is a intriguing taste into the full treasure trove of stories that are included in the book, stories that will bring both a tear and a smile. Be inspired, and amused, and don’t miss the chance to take in this collection of unique tales.
