Become a Patron


The generous support of Henley Festival's Patrons Club supported by Courtiers enables us to present some of the best music and art from across the world. Their generosity also supports our work away from the Festival.

As a way of saying thank you to our Patrons, they enjoy exclusive benefits which bring them closer to Henley Festival.

All membership levels that comprise a benefits value do so to indicate the actual cost of the membership. Memberships can therefore be purchased at this price and any amounts given over and above this benefits value are given freely as a philanthropic donation to the Henley Festival and are eligible for Gift Aid. The Gift Aid we receive from all eligible donations truly does make a difference to the Henley Festival and enables us to continue producing great Festivals.

Patron's Benefits Include

  • Priority booking period for tickets, moorings and restaurant reservations and a dedicated Patron’s Club Manager to support you through the process
  • Named acknowledgement in the Souvenir Programme, on the Festival website and on any specially-created supporter boards around the Festival site.

  • An input into the charitable giving of the Henley Festival Trust
  • A complimentary copy of the Souvenir Programme
  • Tickets and restaurant seats up to a specific value for specially selected nights

The suggested donation for becoming a Patron starts at £2,500+
