Tonbridge Music Club
Tonbridge Music Club (TMC) was founded in 1962 with the aim of bringing the highest quality music making to Tonbridge. To date it has presented each year a season of concerts, by world-class artists, between October and May in Tonbridge, Kent. TMC is a Registered Charity, No. 264447.
Everyone is welcome to our concerts. Over the years, members and the general public have enjoyed performances of the highest artistic standards by internationally renowned musicians as well as young award-winning performers at the outset of their careers.
A standard season for TMC has comprised of five evening concerts, with additional events including pre-concert talks, school-based workshops, family concerts and special events for members. We are committed to the enrichment that high quality live music can bring, and to the educational as well entertainment potential of fine performances.
Unfortunately due to the Covid19 emergency we are obliged to revise our intended programme for 2020-21 and to offer a reduced number of evening concerts. We hope to be able to offer a full season of events once again in 2021-22.
For our 2020-21 season we have introduced a special Benefactor Membership to support us as we navigate our way through these challenging and uncertain times.
TMC is affiliated to Making Music – the National Federation of Music Societies.
In our 2019-20 season we enjoyed four fabulous evening concerts and three fun-filled family and school-based events as part of our Enrichment Programme.
