Henley Festival Celebrates its 40th Anniversary

Henley Festival Presented by Westcoast, the UK’s most glamorous music and arts festival, is gearing up for this year’s 40th anniversary celebrations from Wednesday 6th to Sunday 10th July 2022.

B4’s Richard Rosser spoke with the Festival’s CEO, Jo Bausor about the Festival’s origins, the challenges of the last two years and gains an insight into the logistical nightmares the Festival presents as well as the positive outcomes and highlights.

A truly unique event, Henley Festival is world renowned for curating a vibrant programme spanning pop, world music, classical and jazz, where art, comedy and gastronomy share equal billing with music – and this year is set to be the biggest year yet.

The show begins from the moment Festival goers step onto the green banks of the Thames, to be dazzled by the enchanting troupes of entertainers, to take a ride on the vintage fun fair, or to enjoy a glass of fizz on the Moët Champagne lawn with an unparallel view of the river, and – after an evening of world-class music, comedy, dining and dancing – concludes with a jaw-dropping firework spectacular.


The line-up for Henley Festival 2022 will be announced early next year, with tickets on sale in February.
