Henley Festival 2019

Henley Festival is a boutique event taking place over five days from 11th-15th July, celebrating the best of UK & international music and arts at a quintessentially British location.

This year, Smart are delighted to be delivering a range of fine dining experiences at the festival in conjunction with creative director and Michelin-starred chef, Angela Harnett. 

Billed by the Daily Telegraph as 'one of the most consistently entertaining headliners around’, the legendary Grace Jones will be appearing at Henley Festival on Thursday 12th July. In a show like no other, Grace will be bringing her flamboyant, extravagant performance to the Floating Stage, with non-stop hits including Pull Up to the Bumper and La Vie en Rose. Don’t miss one of the most extraordinary and brilliant sets you’ll ever see!

Other headline acts include Rita Ora and Nile Rodgers & Chic. Scroll down to see when they're playing, and what other acts Henley Festival has in store for this 5-day event offering exquisite hospitality packages and a vibrant programme full of world-class acts. 



For 2019, The Riverside Restaurant fine dining experience will be brought to you in association with Angela Hartnett - one of Britain's most successful and best-loved chefs. Angela will bring her special flare for flavour and attention to details to what promises to be an exceptional dining experience.

Angela was awarded her first Michelin star in 2004 and in 2007 was awarded an MBE for her services to the Hospitality Industry. She is Chef Patron and owner of acclaimed Mayfair restaurant, Murano, together with two Café Murano’s in St James’s and Covent Garden.

“I am absolutely delighted to be working closely with Henley Festival for the first time and to serve the food that I love at such a great and iconic event."
