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!
Embark on an exciting ‘Oceans’ adventure with the Henley Youth Festival.
If you’re 4-18 years old, love to perform, be creative, or want to show you care about the environment then this year’s ‘Oceans’ theme is for you.
Be inspired by nature, explore your own or a character’s experience of the seas. Think about real events, fantasy creatures or invented worlds of the past or future. Dive into your imagination and let your ideas ebb and flow.
There are many ways to showboat your talents – sing a sea shanty, enchant us with a mariner’s tale, paint or film a seascape, dance the hornpipe, thrill us with you rock star moves or play a rhapsody in blue.
