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 only exception is for the Henley Symphony Orchestra Saturday Lunchtime Concert and the Family Sunday children's event.

There is a lower age limit for the festival. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, it is 14+ years, and on Saturday and Sunday, it is 12+ years. Those under 18 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

Weather

The Henley Festival gates open at 6.00pm. There are many covered areas within the enclosure, but if you are on the Lawn or have a General Admission ticket, make sure you bring some protective outerwear for the Main Stage concert. In exceptional weather, no umbrellas are allowed, but Wellington boots are welcome - the more colourful, the better.
