Following Hever Festival Theatre’s successful bitesize season last year, we’re continuing to social distance and offer a full programme of vibrant and varied performances across 4 very different and spectacular venues in the award-winning gardens of Hever Castle, childhood home of Anne Boleyn, one of Kent’s top tourist attactions.

For more details and to book tickets or the Box Office is open for telephone bookings Monday-Friday 9.30am-5pm on 01732 866114.

THE PEOPLE’S STRING FOUNDATION are opening our festival with their first ever show in the South-East. They are fast becoming the musical heavyweight of the South-West and wider folk circles, bringing to life all the dynamism, rhythm and vitality of the true Gypsy spirit in spellbinding performances. Musicians Ben and Zaid use music, puppetry, art, cinematography and animation set to the backdrop of their 32 piece ‘Virtual Orchestra’ to wow audiences with this unique experience.

Led by Ben Sutcliffe (musical director for Rogue, Kneehigh and Bish Bash Bosh theatre companies) whose dazzling violin style has seen him playing with the likes of The Levellers, The Stranglers and The Yardbirds. 

Other HALF TERM treats include the return of the HEVER FESTIVAL CINEMA with two singalong spectaculars THE GREATEST SHOWMAN on Sunday 30 May at 7.30pm and ROCKETMAN on Monday 31 May at 8pm. Now is your chance to sing along with the most wonderful films with lyrics on the screen so you can join in with every word and help us to raise the theatre roof.

The entertainment continues into June with a double bill on Sunday 13th June. Starting with the hilarious comedy BLUE PLANET III at 2.30pm where two idiots at the BBC are making another series of Blue Planet – using only office supplies and their surreal imaginations.

Followed by The Lord Chamberlain’s Men at 7.30pm with the UK’s premier all male theatre company with direct links to the history of William Shakespeare who invite you to join them for the breathless and brilliant, MACBETH.
