Festival week is HERE!
Posted on Jul 2, 2017
What a wonderful week last week was! Henley was filled with tall rowers, pastel coloured trousers and pretty fascinators as crowds came together to enjoy a spot of rowing. Now, Henley returns to it's calm and collected nature, the hustle and bustle moving away from the center and heading outward towards the city...
...Only kidding! We're here with a bang as it is finally *drum roll please* Festival Week!
There is so much to look forward to and so much to say but we're going to keep it short as there's a Floating Stage to be built and outfits to sort for the Black Tie attire.
As you may already know, the Floating Stage is playing host to some of the most talented of musicians, from the iconic 70s duo Pet Shop Boys to the divine soulful voice that belongs to Chaka Khan. And that is only one venue! Fancy a laugh? The Salon Comedy Club is the place for you. We've got comedians such as Seann Walsh, Sara Pascoe and Joel Dommett taking to the stage to make you laugh until you cry (all happy tears of course!)
A spot of new music? Say Hello to the Bedouin! BBC Berks Introducing will be supporting some of our new and upcoming talents, so be sure to head down to the bohemian tent to see what is on offer. Classical concerts? Check out the classical musicians in the Jazz Garden Gallery for a spot of ear-delight.
Food? Bubbles? You name it! We've got concession stands that will tickle everyones fancy (not to mention the Moet & Chandon vending machines!)
Whether you're here for the music, the art or the comedy there is something for you all and we are so excited to open our gates for Henley Festival 2017. Now, just a few bits of key information:
