Become A Sponsor

A truly unique event held at a quintessentially British location on the banks of the River Thames, Henley Festival embraces a vibrant programme from pop to classical music, jazz to world music, comedy to magical street theatre, where art and gastronomy share equal billing with music and comedy.

Henley Festival is a UK registered charity and we rely on the support of individuals, businesses and organisations to carry out our artistic mission. We have an incredibly loyal audience of 30,000 guests who attend over 5 nights and the Festival is much loved by the Henley community and the wider South East.

Talent is everywhere but opportunities less so and to coincide with our 40th anniversary, we’re launching a new charitable initiative called RISE to support emerging talent in front and behind the spotlight. RISE will give talented individuals or groups, whatever their story, the opportunity to take the first steps into the exciting world of performance and creativity both public facing and back of house. We feel it’s our mission to nurture the next generation of creative talent, especially after the devastating effect of the pandemic on the cultural sector, so across our programme we’ll be providing opportunities for young musicians, comedians and visual artists to perform or show their work, as well as helping them before and after with marketing and production.

Henley Festival offers a fantastic range of corporate sponsorship and hospitality opportunities to suit any budget. Associate your brand with the Festival, whilst targeting our audience and enjoying unique hospitality opportunities.
