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)
  • 4 complimentary Grandstand tickets (best available) on an evening of your choice, plus 2 complimentary VIP car parking passes
  • 2 complimentary general admission tickets for every other evening of the Festival, plus a VIP car parking pass for each night
  • An exclusive launch for Patrons prior to the public programme announcement
  • Exclusive entry into the Festival site with your guests from 5.30pm each evening.
  • Each Patron will be able to bring up to 10 guests each night into our VIP Patrons' Lounge. You will be greeted in the Patrons' Lounge with your own bottle of champagne and boxed canapés.
  • Named acknowledgement in the Souvenir Programme, on the Festival website and on any specially-created supporter boards around the Festival site.
  • Invitations for you and a guest to exclusive Festival events during the week of the Festival, plus access to the Patrons' Lounge
  • An input into the charitable giving of the Henley Festival Trust

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

Priority booking for Patrons for the 2019 Festival will be in January

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.
