A new interactive exhibition, Turning Points, has been added to A Day at the Wells, a Heritage attraction which recreates a visit to Tunbridge Wells in 1740 during its heyday under Beau Nash. Participants imagine life without electricity, cars, running water or other aspects of 20th-century living using working models, rotating quiz centres and "challenge sheets". Details: Lauren Bacon, A Day at the Wells, The Corn Exchange, The Pantiles, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN2 5QJ. Tel: 01892 546545.
