About Henley Festival 2020
Henley Festival 2020 is a boutique cultural experience which takes place over five days in July 2020, celebrating the best of international and UK music, art, food and comedy at a quintessentially British location.
Henley Festival is an exclusive boutique black-tie festival which takes place over five days celebrating the best of UK and International music and arts. The festival is a truly unique event. It embraces a vibrant programme from pop to world music, classical to jazz where art and gastronomy share equal billing with music.
The organisers are as passionate about making a difference, as they are creating the best ingredients for the festival year on year – as a team – striving to merge great music, food, comedy and art into unique experiences that create unforgettable memories for their guests, sponsors and partners.
Supporting young local emerging talent and local charities is something they’re all proud to be a part of, because their community helps define them and helps shape what they do with the festival and their charities every year.
They believe that anyone who comes into contact with the festival is important, be it a member of our team, a performing artist, a guest, or someone that benefits from the support of any of our chosen charities. They never lose touch with the reason why they set the festival up in the first place – to give others, the support and opportunity to feel special too.
The Henley Festival has a dress code of Black Tie. Everyone is encouraged to get dressed to the nines – think dinner jackets, evening trousers and bow ties for men, long or short evening wear for ladies, sequins and sparkle.
The nearest train station is Henley-on-Thames, which has links to London (approx. 1 hour) and Reading (approx. 20 minutes). The festival is situated just over Henley Bridge and the walk from the station to the Festival entrance should take less than 10 minutes.
