The Hever Festival Theatre provides an idyllic setting for a wonderful summer’s evening of socialising in the evening sunshine combined with top quality entertainment.
The open air venue is set in a magical location in the award winning gardens of Hever Castle in Kent. The stage is fully covered, and the seating is tiered with the vast majority of seats under brand new seating canopies, which means if the sun doesn’t shine, the audience still can enjoy the spectacular setting with protection from the weather.
The gates open at 1.45pm for matinees, and close at 6pm allowing plenty of time to enjoy the gardens and lake. In the evening the gates open at 6.30pm and audience are welcome to picnic in the beautiful gardens of the Castle before the evening performances begin at 8pm. A bar and snack food counter are available, and the Guthrie Pavilion Restaurant offers pre-theatre suppers and cream teas (to be booked in advance). For those who wish to stay with their picnics all evening, unreserved and uncovered grass seating is available for most music concerts.
There is a huge range of fantastic live entertainment on offer every summer including plays, opera, comedy, jazz, music, tribute acts and a week of Cinema Under the Stars
