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.

Patron's Benefits Include

  • Patrons are the first priority friends group to be able to book an unlimited number of seats in the Grandstand and Lawn (subject to availability)

Gift Aid and VAT Information: Gift Aid: All of your payment represents an unrestricted donation to the Henley Festival. To Donate Gift Aid, please complete the form. For VAT purposes, your contribution is split as follows: Patron − Donation £2,000 / Benefits £1,000

Patrons priority booking for Henley Festival 2019 will commence in February.

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.
