ABOUT

Established by John Howes in 1992, the Audiojumble has steadily grown from humble beginnings to become the iconic event that it is today.

The first Audiojumble was held at a small municipal hall in Southborough, with just 22 stallholders. It was later moved to its current location in Tonbridge which provides capacity for more than 140 stalls spread across two large halls and several side-rooms. Originally an annual event, the frequency was later increased to twice-yearly in order to satisfy demand.

In 2015 John stepped back from the day-to-day running of the show and handed over the reins to his three children, Catherine, Michael and Richard. Having helped out at every Audiojumble event since its inception, they have grown up with the Audiojumble from a young age, so are passionate about ensuring that it continues to thrive in its third decade.
