If Henley Festival itself is unique, its all-year-round charitable work makes it even more so.
From the outset the Henley Festival has been intent on sharing its successes by working in the wider community and in 2015 we celebrate a second year of a major partnership with The Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts.
Once again thanks to the generosity of its Patrons, Friends, Sponsors and you our audience, national and regional projects will take place with any profit generated at the Festival.
Profits from 2014 have seen children being given unique opportunities to discover art, theatre and poetry in Milton Keynes, Reading and in East London where otherwise the doors would have remained closed.
We are also proud to continue our programme of supporting local arts organisations and charities in and around Henley. This year we are supporting projects with grants for Camp Mohawk, Henley Youth Choir, Headway, and Music on the Meadows, plus providing live music for local care homes.
Lastly we continue a seventh consecutive year of support for the Henley Festival Orchestra and look forward to welcoming them to the Festival this year during the day on Saturday.
