Featuring The Beach Boys, Jamie Cullum, Madness and Paloma Faith among more, the Henley Festival will run from 10th to the 14th of July this year. Set against the backdrop of the River Thames, as well as five individual and eclectic nights of the great music on the floating stage, the festival features visual arts, fashion, street theatre, comedy and fine dining. Now in its 31st year, this elegant, black tie event offers just 5,000 tickets for each night.
As well as world-class musical performances on the stage, each night has Michelin-starred dining on offer from father and son Albert Roux and Michel Roux Jr. Guests can enjoy a candlelight dinner from the award-winning chefs at their atmospheric riverside restaurant. Food is an integral part of Henley Festival and with six restaurants on the site there are multiple culinary choices available. All net profits after the event go to the Henley Festival charitable projects. Under the banner of ‘Arts Inspiring Lives’, the festival promotes year round community projects, with the aim of providing experiences via the arts to groups that may not otherwise have access.
