Henley Festival 2015

July 28, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

You may be mistaken (like me) in thinking that the Festival is the same as the Henley Royal Regatta, the social event founded in 1839...Wrong!

The Henley Festival is actually in it's 33rd year; it is a festival of Arts and Music. It started life with the focus on classical music however it has developed over the years into a 5 day festival with live music from different genre, contemporary arts, comedy and fireworks. Champagne, black ties and evening dresses add to the glamour of this quirky event. 

I was fortunate enough to have the pleasure of covering Henley as a corporate event photographer, capturing the essence of the unusual festival. 

Sit back, put your feet up and enjoy....

For something a little bit different, with entertainment galore I would recommend a evening (or two) at the Henley Festival.
Thank you and Goodnight!
