Event Review – Hever Castle Jazz Concert 2016

International Needs have been blessed by the opportunity to use the beautiful grounds of Hever Castle and their wonderful festival theatre for many years. Through hosting events there, we have been able to raise a lot of money for our projects helping families in need around the world. And we’ve had a great time with our supporters enjoying great music!

2016 saw our first ever jazz concert in the grounds of Hever Castle. The event was a success as Raul D’Oliveira and the JetStream Jazz Big Band gave a fantastic show. The big sound of high energy modern jazz was a perfect way to spend a relaxed summer’s evening, not to mention the beautiful grounds that made it truly picturesque. But don’t just take our word for it…hear from a couple of our guests…

“A group of us went to the Jet Stream Jazz Band concert at Hever in 2016 and we all had a wonderful evening. The beautiful gardens and lakeside setting on a summer’s evening set the scene for a relaxed picnic, followed by such a lovely concert. I am not a jazz expert but  I really enjoyed the beautiful music – and Raul D’Oliveira is brilliant! They are all very talented and make a great sound! I would very much encourage everyone to book this event; you will not be disappointed!” – Beverley Harniman, IN Family Member giving to Child Sponsorship

“What a wonderful evening. The scenery was incredible; we started off with a picnic by the lake, and then went on to enjoy the beautiful music for the rest of the evening. Not only was it a great evening but it was for an even better cause. Well recommended for all.” – Asher, IN Family Member giving to Child Sponsorship


We are running this event again this year on Saturday 3rd June 2017. So make sure not to miss out and book your tickets here:
