Thank you to Carolyn Gray for these memories of Tunbridge Wells Belgian week/end on her blog – there are some great photos if you visit the original blog.
We are now the other side of Tunbridge Wells Belgian Festival 2017. It was a busy weekend, of beer, Belgians, walking and talking.
There were also some slightly less Belgian elements.
Highlights: Refugee Grandmother hoped they could come to Tunbridge Wells in 1914 after reading Thackeray novels. Reading in a diary about the day the Mayor’s bust was presented to the town in 1915. Going into Wetherspoons (The Opera House). Listening to French and not knowing what was going on.
If you would like to walk the Belgian Community Heritage Trail, there are lots of maps around the town, or download one.
