Buckle up Henley! Henley Festival 2020 has sadly been postponed until 2021 BUT the party goes on and this year they will be hosting a Car Park Party.
This is believed to be UK’s first socially distanced and safe entertainment experience bringing together world renowned brands in comedy, karaoke and cinema and is coming to Henley for 3 nights on 9-11 July on Lion Meadow thanks to Henley Royal Regatta.
Car Park Party provides not just an evening, but a whole weekend to look forward to. Each day will hold a different fun-filled experience showcasing Car Park Comedy, Car Park Karaoke and Car Park Cinema, something for all of the family and friends to enjoy. The UK’s top comedic talent will be supplied by the world-famous Comedy Store on Thursday 9 July, with a night at the movies on Friday 10 July featuring two blockbuster hits with Mamma Mia and The Greatest Showman. Live music will return to round off festivities on Saturday 11 July with a spectacular sing-a-long concert from the Massaoke Band bringing two performances to the evening with ‘A Night At The Musicals’ and ‘Back To The Eighties’ complete with a special Henley Festival flourish – all to be enjoyed from the comfort and safety of your own car.
Nick Mattingley, CEO Henley Festival said, “‘We are thrilled to host the first Car Park Party at our normal Festival location, generously supported Henley Royal Regatta. We are working closely with industry professionals and our local authority to make sure that Car Park Party is in-line with the latest social distancing measures, giving the highest level of reassurance to attendees so that they are able to sit back, relax, laugh and sing their hearts out. In a year when Henley Festival Trust has no income from the festival we’ve had to fall back on innovative ideas to fill the gap, Car Park Party absolutely fits the bill, and all from the safety of your own car.”
There will be limited tickets for each night priced at £35 per car. So strap in and secure your space for the drive-in event of the summer! For more information visit www.henley-festival.co.uk. Tickets go on sale on Friday 22 May.
