A Perfect Summer's Evening
Welcome to the Hever Festival!
This year's season is packed full of great shows and top quality entertainment. Last summer we enjoyed glorious weather in our stunning open-air location in the award winning gardens of Hever Castle in Kent, and this year we are hoping for more of the same! Even if the sun doesn't shine, with our fully covered stage and the vast majority of seats under brand new seating canopies, our audiences can still enjoy the spectacular setting with protection from the weather.
'Fantastic setting and productions... these great evening theatre shows at Hever are a must see...'
The programme this season is as exciting and diverse as ever. Highlights include spectacular shows celebrating the music of The Bee Gees, Billie Holiday, Simon and Garfunkel and Celine Dion; and we are thrilled to present two operatic productions both for the first time at Hever; Opera Brava present Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro and for Gilbert and Sullivan fans, Illyria present Ruddigore.
'It's quite magic coming to your performances'
No Hever season would be complete without Festival favourites Kent Rep who this year present the Alan Ayckbourn classic, Time and Time Again. Plus Bromley Little Theatre return for their third year with a hilarious new production of Richard Bean's popular play One Man, Two Guvnors. Also back by popular demand, following sell-out performances last year are The Last Night of the Hever Proms, The Magic of Motown, and The Ronnie Scott's All Stars with a new show for 2016.
All this and much more! With Family Shows, Comedy, Cinema under the Stars and a wide selection of Musical Entertainment we hope we have something to suit everyone, whatever your age or taste!

'Very professional and a lovely setting on a summer's evening, the pavilion restaurant was open and many people were enjoying a picnic before the show on the grass... all in all to be recommended!'
