2019 Sponsors

We are delighted to announce our new sponsors who have kindly agreed to support us for HYF 2019.  Sponsors of the Henley Youth Festival in previous years have included 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.


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. Click HERE to download the latest information pack for sponsors.

St Joseph's College

St Joseph’s College is an independent co-educational day school in the centre of Reading. Its mission is to encourage, inspire, challenge and support each pupil throughout their journey through the school. The school’s aims are centred around four key attributes: commitment, collaboration, confidence and communication. Each one is a thread that runs through each child’s spiritual, academic, pastoral and extra-curricular education, aiming to nurture skills that will serve them throughout their lives. There is a strong focus on lifelong learning, rather than just providing pupils with the skills to get into university. St Joseph’s has recently won several awards - Independent School of the Year at the TES Independent School Awards, the Outstanding Progress Award at the Education Business Awards, and Leadership Team of the Year at the Leadership Awards. It has also been shortlisted for the Wellbeing Award at the TES Independent School Awards 2019.

Our emphasis on fun when teaching dance is the key ingredient that makes our classes such a success with children of all ages.
