Tunbridge Wells Forum has been named as Britain's Best Small Venue by NME in association with JD Roots.

Following last week's announcement of the final shortlist, a judging panel consisting of Frank Turner, T In The Park and Glasgow King Tut's Wah Wah Hut promoter Geoff Ellis, Reading And Leeds Festivals mainman Melvin Benn, Jo Dipple, head of UK Music, Radio 1's Huw Stephens and NME's own Krissi Murison, Mike Williams and Luke Lewis cast their votes and Tunbridge Wells Forum came out on top.

To celebrate, Enter Shikari will headline Tunbridge Wells Forum for a special one-off show, playing the 250-capacity venue on June 5. Details on how to secure tickets for this show will be revealed in the coming weeks.

To read a new interview with Enter Shikari and to find out more about Tunbridge Wells Forum's triumph, pick up the new issue of NME which is on UK newsstands tomorrow (May 9) and available digitally.

The Cribs and The Horrors are among the bands playing an intimate hometown show as part of JD Roots, who have partnered with NME to support local music and search for Britain's Best Small Venue. The Cribs will play Wakefield's Theatre Royal on May 16, with The Horrors returning to Southend Chinnerys on May 9. Twin Atlantic kicked off the series last week (May 3) with an intimate show at Glasgow's King Tut's Wah Wah Hut.
