Welcome to Henley Youth Festival

The Henley Youth Festival is a totally individual event and as far as we know there is nothing else quite like it in the country!

It is a means of celebrating the talents and achievements of young people in our area and to give them experiences across a wide range of activities that they might not otherwise encounter.


We support and promote the performing and visual arts, have some great team and individual sports events and also nurture other skills through workshops and competitions.

We're now in our 27th year and really need some new volunteers to come along and take up the reigns. Interested? Then please get in touch!

Oceans of awe-inspiring fun and a tsunami of talent was on show as those Henley's young people took part in 14 days of performing & creative arts, competitions, workshops and sport.

Our school workshops provided over 150 hours of art and education to local school children plus our art, film writing & cartoon competitions saw record entries.

Over 170 performers took part in our shows at the Kenton and other events such as Gig Night, the HYF Run and Junior proms took place around the town.
