Become a Friend of the Henley Literary Festival 2013
The intimacy of our fabulous venues makes Henley Literary Festival very special – it also means that we often sell out of tickets for the major events very quickly. In 2012 Friends of the Festival were the first to see the line-up and book tickets for sold-out events such as Sir John Major, Clare Balding, Rupert Everett, Lucy Worsley, Craig Brown and Michael Palin. It is the best way of both keeping up to date with the latest festival news and, by providing vital support, ensuring the future of the festival, a not-for-profit organisation.
With Festival debuts from the likes of Clare Balding, David Lodge, Rupert Everett and Jilly Cooper alongside return visits from authors including Michael Palin, Lucy Worsley, Tony Parsons and Craig Brown, this year’s festival proved the most popular to date.
We offer a range of bespoke sponsorship packages, from single events and venue full-day sponsorship to official partners and title sponsors.
It is now possible to become a Friend of the Festival for 2013, to receive priority booking, an invitation to the launch party and other benefits.
