Last Saturday, residents of Royal Tunbridge Wells enjoyed an evening of the very best dance-floor classics – covering pop, rock ‘n’ roll, soul, funk and disco. The bandstand, nestled amidst the vibrant ambiance of the historic Pantiles, served as the perfect platform for an evening of “Soul Train”.
In this week’s blog, we’re reflecting on the successful event and what else we can expect at The Pantiles in 2023.
From 7pm to 10pm, the bandstand came alive with captivating live music and DJs, headlined by the talented Disco Odyssey. This six-piece band delivered a string of classic hits from artists such as The O’Jays, Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, Kool & The Gang, Sister Sledge, Chic, Dua Lipa, Chaka Khan, Jamiroquai, and more. The seamless blend of timeless favourites and contemporary soul compositions showcased the enduring appeal of the genre, providing the audience with an immersive musical experience.
Alongside the great music, attendees were treated to a colourful culinary journey. The Tunbridge Wells Hotel, The Kirthon Indian, and La Casa Vecchia joined in the fun, dishing out a mouthwatering array of cuisines. From authentic Bangladeshi delicacies to Mediterranean delights, there was something for every palate.

The Pantiles, renowned for its elegance and charm, provided an idyllic backdrop for the Soul Train event. As music reverberated through the bandstand, the enchanting atmosphere of this historic location elevated the experience to new heights. The Pantiles’ cobblestone streets, lined with boutique shops, restaurants, bars and quaint cafes, added to the allure of the event, creating a perfect blend of soul music and architectural splendour.
Over the years, the site’s reputation has been solidified as a premier destination, attracting widespread attention to the area. The current schedule of highly popular events at The Pantiles have proven highly beneficial to the location’s tenants and the local economy. With another Soul Train event penned in for 29th July, a second helping of the Food Festival and the popular Gin & Jazz extravaganza in September – plus Thursday evening jazz continuing throughout the summer, there’s plenty to look forward to at The Pantiles.
