2022 Sponsors

Sponsors of the Henley Youth Festival include local community educational and other Trusts, small independent businesses and national companies. Some sponsor entire sections of the Festival while others sponsor one event, the website, a piece of equipment or prizes for competitions. Professional workshop groups such as the Young Shakespeare Company offer exceptional extra curricular experiences, but are expensive for schools to hire, so the Henley Youth Festival plays an important role in supporting this element of local school life.


In a similar vein, HYF pays for the hire of the Kenton Theatre for a week which offers every young person a chance to take to the stage, either alone or with friends, regardless of whether they study with a performing arts group.


Without the contribution from sponsors, the Henley Youth Festival would not take place. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the below sponsors for their support and contribution.


We are currently looking for new sponsors to support us for HYF 2022. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of the Henley Youth Festival, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss a sponsorship package that meets your needs. For all sponsorship enquiries please contact Debbie Pattinson.

One of the first events of its kind in the UK, and certainly the first locally, it runs every evening from December 1st to 24th. Like a children’s Advent Calendar, a different window or door is opened at 6:15pm promptly each evening and a 30 minute performance is given to the audience assembled. This can include songs, carols, music, poetry, book excerpts, notes from local history or folklore, sketches, dance etc, all with a Christmas or winter focus to them. Each Venue is matched, by the Organising Committee, with a local performer or group of performers and a collection is made, and Raffle tickets sold, every evening for selected local Charities
