Pure Fun Factory in North Farm Road, Tunbridge Wells applies for nightclub and theatre licence

17 April 2014
by KentOnline reporter

Bosses of the Pure Fun Factory play centre in Tunbridge Wells have applied to the borough council for a licence that could see the building used as a nightclub opening until 4am.

Planning documents submitted to the council state the 'core business' would remain a children's play centre.

But they request permission for a change of use so the building could double as a nightclub or theatre space with a capacity of 650.

The application also suggests the venue could be used for: 

  • A 'pop up drinking establishment' for events like screenings of World Cup games
  • A skating rink
  • One-off events such as specialist food tasting or Mothers' Day promotions.

 

If the plans are approved, applicants High Brooms Entertainment Ltd say the current staff of six full-time and nine part-time employees will increase to 44.

The applicant envisages laying on a shuttle bus service from Tunbridge Wells town centre when the venue is operating as a nightclub. 

The licence would enable it to open until 4am Thursday to Sunday.

Full details of the application are available on the council's website.
