Flower Festival

Sunday 5th June: 11am – 4pm

As well as the flower come and explore our history and the first building in Tunbridge Wells where King’s and Queen’s have worshipped since 1678.

The physical Church building of King Charles the Martyr is of great historic interest as it was the first solid brick building to be erected in the town. The Church’s name (foundation) is relatively unique with only a handful of other churches in the world sharing the same dedication to King Charles the first. Likewise the building is also distinct as few churches were built during the latter part of the seventeenth century and is grade 1 listed. The plasterwork of the interior ceiling which was created by Sir Christopher Wren’s master craftsman is a tourist attraction and the church was frequented by Queen Henrietta Maria, Queen Anne and most famously Queen Victoria. Handel visited the church on numerous occasions and some famous names gave money for its construct including Samuel Pepys. Along side the flower festival there will be display about the churches history and historical artefacts.
