Glow Music Festival Set to Return This Winter

Henley’s first ever winter music festival GLOW is set to return to Leander this winter! Launching with a Bavarian Beer Party on 26 November, GLOW will also play host to three epic nights of aprés ski entertainment from 1-3 December 2022.

Get ready to dust off your ski gear. Henley’s winter music festival GLOW is bringing epic, aprés-style party vibes to Henley On Thames. With music from local favourites such as JG Collective, Brother Strut and DJ Jamie Taylor, expect high-octane entertainment underneath GLOW’s heated marquee.

Guests are encouraged to get dressed up in their favourite ski gear for the aprés ski nights or lederhosen and dirndl if they’re attending the Bavarian Beer Party! There will be a fully stocked bar and street food available to buy courtesy of Leander’s chefs. It’s the perfect way to start the festive season with friends, family or the office for an unforgettable Christmas party! 

You can expect an electric party atmosphere as all of GLOW’s bands have performed at Europe’s biggest and best aprés ski parties. Every night DJ Jamie Taylor will also be on the decks, to ensure there’s no let up on the dancefloor. On 26 November, we’re joined by one of the UK’s finest Bavarian style Oompah bands The Bettesteiner Footstompers, before a party band will perform late into the evening.

Early bird tickets are available for just £15 right now, but be quick as these are limited in numbers. If you fancy hosting a group of friends or your Christmas party at GLOW, you can book a package deal, which includes a drink on arrival, food, a dedicated seating area and your entry for £50 per person based on a minimum of eight people. 

On the night, the venue opens from 5pm on weekdays and 3pm for both Saturdays and will run until 12pm. If you have guests coming in from out of town, you can even book Leander’s hotel rooms which start from just £125 for a double room with breakfast.

GLOW is brought to you by two local businesses, Eight Ray Music and Twenty One Twelve Marketing. Henley residents may remember the pair’s first collaboration for Henley Lockdown Fest, the virtual festival which raised nearly £25,000 for the NHS and local mental health charity, The Riverside Counselling Service, during lockdown.

This year alone, the pair have collaborated with Hobbs of Henley to raise thousands for The Riverside Counselling Service and this year they will use GLOW to support charity once more.

With GLOW, the pair are on a mission to inspire, support and bring festive party vibes straight to the local community. Don’t miss out, make sure you join in the fun by booking your tickets early. 

GLOW is a boutique event with limited capacity, so once tickets are gone they’re really gone!

We look forward to partying with many of you this winter!
