Hever Castle
Town: Hever
Event: Hever Castle

Location: Hever Castle, TN8 7NG
Date(s): 01/01/2017 - 31/12/2017

Dating back to the 13th century, Hever Castle was once the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII and Mother of Elizabeth I. It formed the unlikely backdrop to a sequence of tumultuous events that changed the course of Britain’s history, monarchy and religion.

Its panelled rooms house fine furniture, tapestries, antiques and what is regarded as ‘one of the best collections of Tudor portraits after the National Portrait Gallery’ by David Starkey. The Book of Hours Room beautifully illuminates two prayer books which belonged to Anne Boleyn and bear her inscriptions and signature.

Hever Castle is what every child wants a castle to be: crenellated, moated and haunted. A permanent exhibition in the Long Gallery brings the 16th century to life with costumed figures illustrating key events in Anne’s life at the Castle.

When visiting the Castle we recommend you allow at least an hour to enjoy it. View opening times for final entry and final exit.

Glyn and his wife Stephanie have been re-united after the most recent of Glyn’s many affairs, and Adam has brought along the latest of his usually unsuitable (says his mum) girlfriends, Maureen.

As the evening wears on assisted by copious alcoholic lubrication, in typical Ayckbourn style, family skeletons come hurtling out of long locked cupboards and the happy family illusion collapses with catastrophic consequences.
