Although Tonbridge School has many boarders, they do not vacate their rooms the Festival Weekend. So unlike Ardingly there is no on-site accommodation.
The good news is unlike Ardingly, Tonbridge is much better connected. The Town itself has 2 Premier Inns and major surrounding towns of Royal Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks have plenty of accommodation.There is also a Camp-Site/Motor Home park closeby.
So in total versus Ardingly, there is a lot more accommodation closeby and of course it will be of a much higher standard and actually not much more expensive than the Ardingly Rooms.
We have contacted all the establishments below recently and know there are rooms available. There are countless other accommodations using the usual Travel sites like www.booking.com , Airbnb, Trip Advisor etc

There is a Best Western Hotel in Tonbridge. When we selected the Venue we reserved all available remaining rooms at this Hotel (unfortunately a number had already been booked for a different event). This is where we will place the maestros and core festival staff.
We have a handful of rooms remaining which will be available on first come, first serve basis. Because we have so few available, there are some criteria attached.
DOUBLE ROOM (3 NIGHTS FRI, SAT, SUN) £330 for two people b&b
Each person must be spending minimum of £175 across 3 days
TWIN ROOM (3 NIGHTS FRI, SAT, SUN) £330 for two people b&b

DOUBLE ROOM ( 2 NIGHTS FRI, SAT) £220 for two people b&b
