In the current environment we have taken the decision not to go ahead with our planned VE 75 celebrations on 8 May.  However, as soon as the country is back up and running we will revive our plans and invite you all to help celebrate with us.

The event is FREE.  To obtain tickets, please CLICK HERE

Please join us to celebrate 75 years since the end of World War II in Europe.

This is an exclusive invitation for local residents of Hever, Markbeech and Four Elms and their friends and families.

The event will take place by the lakeside in Hever Castle, on Friday 8th May from 6.30pm to 10pm.

We will have a fabulous swing band Natty Congeroo and the Flames of Rhythm along with free boat rides on the lake.
