we’ve been expecting you...
Henley Festival began as an idea, by a few, in 1983, to bring music and culture to the town of Henley.
In 2015, this extraordinary Festival brings artists of the highest calibre from all over the world, and draws an audience in excess of 25,000 to the most magical festival setting they will ever experience.
This year marks a new era for the Festival, as we look to grow our audience with a new programme of events over the weekend for families, plus the re-introduction of a classical programme for the Friday night of the Festival.
In the future we plan to work more closely with artists and creative thinkers, supporting collaboration between them, as they invent the cultural future.
We’ve come a long way since 1983 and we are excited about where we are going in the future.
