Tom Jones will headlining on the opening night of the Henley Festival on Wednesday 6th July. He will be performing on the Floating Stage with a programme that includes classic hits, special selections, and songs from his acclaimed latest work, Praise & Blame. Henley Festival is an extraordinary and elegant mix of music, art, culture, dining and location – the most magical summer event in the United Kingdom. Coming the week after the Regatta and lasting 5 nights, audiences are treated to an event full of contrasting performances on whichever night they attend - the best in classical music, jazz, opera, comedy, dance, street theatre, rock and firework spectaculars like you've never experienced them before.
One ticket gives access to up to six timetabled events each night (as well as the visual art galleries and ad hoc street theatre fun) and access to a choice of bars, eateries and a wide range of top quality catering concessions.
Sipping champagne overlooking the water whilst enjoying the Festival's sights and sounds - designer evening wear, banks of flowers, extraordinary sculptures, swirling lights and the sight of a hundred candle lit dinner parties taking place on the boats on the river will provide lasting memories.
Taking place between 6 and 10 July 2011, this glorious Black Tie event is now one of the biggest, best-established and best-loved Arts Festivals in the country.
With its wonderful range of entertainment in a breathtaking setting on the banks of the River Thames and with some of the best wining and dining seen at any Festival, Henley Festival makes for a highly glamorous party not to be missed, with stars on stage and in the audience, too!
