Theatres in or around Tunbridge Wells? I'm rather lonely and a little homesick...

Next month I will be moving down to Tunbridge Wells from really far up north (Middlesbrough area) and I don't know a single soul in the area. I will be moving down to train on the Technical Theatre Arts course at the BRIT school, so I'm not sure how much free time I will have but I would love to get involved in a theatre somewhere nearby. I'm only 16 but entirely dedicated to my passion for theatre, hence my move into the big wide world all on my own. I came down for a bit the other week and I found it hard to live without friends in the area, and like in the last theatre I've worked in my work friends have grown to be like a surrogate family and it's felt like home to me. So if you work at or know any friendly theatres in the area where I could gain some experience, I'd love to hear from you!
Sorry for my little rant, but this is such a friendly forum. You guys are great! :3

That should keep you busy for a bit but there are loads of other AmDram groups in the area, Pantiles Players, TWODS, Sevenoaks Entertainers and Sevenoaks Players to name a few.

Technical wise - Trinity is small and there aren't many opportunities to get backstage work, your best way in is TTC, who have big sets and lighting designs and you can make your self know to the Tech Manager. If you get work there you'll love it. The Assembly Halls is not particularly friendly and you stand a chance at getting a bit of work at The Stag in Sevenoaks and The Oast in Tonbridge.7
Tunbridge Wells has a big Am Dram scene, and a huge music scene as well so I'm sure if you try, and volunteer places you will build up a nice little world.
Hope you like it!

If you look behind the stage left prosc arch you will find the origional Strand Grand Master dimmer complete with hand cranks et al. Under a few CM's of dust though but still interesting to look at
