Henley Music and Arts Festival

Britain’s only black tie festival, Henley Music and Arts Festival provides a unique and exhilarating experience.

The Festival occupies the same stunning stretch of The Thames as Henley Royal Regatta and plays host to an incredible line-up of top musicians, street performers, art displays, comedy, and a nightly fireworks show.

Our skippered launches offer a stunning way to enjoy the Festival. You can opt to stay on-board and enjoy the Festival’s sights and sounds from a distance, or you can use the boat as transport to take you to and from the Festival. Book your bespoke experience now.
