Please consider playing a crucial part in ensuring future Festivals that can match the buzz and brilliance of recent years by becoming a Friend of the Festival for 2020. Regular membership is £35 or you can become a Gold Friend for £100 and a Platinum Friend for £250 a Platinum Friend. Friends are the first to hear any Festival news and buy tickets, as well as enjoying discounts with our partners. And as a special thank you to, we are making three of last year’s highlights available for Friends to listen to: the inspiring Elif Shafak, Poirot star David Suchet and the frank and funny conversation between Telegraph columnist Bryony Gordon and Everyday Sexism founder Laura Bates.

We’ve been truly heartened by the messages in the last few months from near and far letting us know how much Henley Literary Festival means to you. Your support at this time will mean that this special event can return in the form that we all love.
