A floating stage. The biggest names in music and comedy. Black ties. Sharp suits. Designer dresses. Celebrity chefs’ pop-up restaurants. Champagne sipped beside the Thames. An armada of pleasure boats. Dance. Street theatre. Art, sculpture and roving eccentrica. Fireworks. And more fireworks. Late night parties.

Welcome to Henley Festival.

At Henley Festival this year BMW will be seeking out the Best Dressed guests each night with a fun photo competition. When you spot the BMW Best Dressed photo area, drum up your best celebrity pout and take a picture. Alternatively, BMW staff will be on hand if you prefer a less close-up look! Then tweet your photo with the hashtag #BMWBestDressed. The BMW Style Guru will pick a winner each night by 10pm and send a tweet of congratulations. A BMW goody bag will be waiting in the BMW Lounge for the lucky winner to collect that evening.
