The Festival Theatre at Hever Castle

The Caterham and District Independent recently collaborated with The Festival Theatre at Hever Castle and become their media partner. The theatre performances have been happening at the castle for the past 40 years and their summer shows began recently with live entertainment from The People's String Foundation. 

Both Ben Sutcliffe and Zaid Al-Rikabi  (who are Cornwall based) performed on one of the four stages located within the grounds. Their live album entitled Res Publica was available to buy following its release in 2019. The musicians use music, puppetry, art, cinematography and animation to produce a spectacular show which is accompanied by their 32 piece virtual orchestra.

As a media partner, The Caterham and District Independent team will be reviewing performances as well a offering you our readers exclusive opportunities and competition prizes. We also have a fantastic competition for children  which we will be launching soon as well as opportunities for our work experience teams. 

Tickets for the festival are bookable online at or via the Box office on 01732 866114.  To find out more about our work with Hever Castle visit and subscribe to our You Tube channel; The Caterham and District Independent.
