The Tempest

The Tempest at the castle


We are excited to announce the return of the Sevenoaks Shakespeare Society to YHA St Briavels Castle in July 2018. This year they are performing The Tempest, Shakespeare’s comedy about a major act of betrayal, ill treatment, the development of magic arts and a plot of revenge! 

We have two performances; an evening performance at 7.30pm on Saturday 14th July and a matinee performance at 2pm on Sunday 15th July.

There is also accommodation available on the Saturday night. Please call the hostel direct on 01594 530272 and ask to speak to either Linda, Chris or Samantha. There are both private rooms and dorm beds available.

The tickets prices are £15 on the door or £12 if booked in advance. If you're a previous guest, we would like to offer you an additional loyalty discount reducing the price to £10 for all tickets booked by 30th June. Simply mention that you would like to book the EARLY BIRD offer when you call.

YHA is a registered charity focusing on supporting young people and we are delighted to continue to offer tickets at £5 for anyone under the age of 26 (including on the gate).

To make a booking please call direct on 01594 530272. Our office hours vary but please do leave an answer phone message if we are unavailable or send an email to [email protected] with your number and a best time to call and we will be touch as soon as we can.
