The beautiful and historic market town of Henley on Thames in the stunning Oxfordshire Chiltern Hills is home to the Henley Royal Regatta – the best-known regatta in the world and one of the highlights of the summer sporting calendar and social season – and the Henley Festival, one of the UK’s most glamorous boutique festivals.

This year the festival returns to its lovely setting along the river in Henley on Thames from 6-10 July with an amazing array of internationally renowned musical talent and a wealth of cultural events spanning comedy, food, visual arts and street theatre.
