Hlth is Wlth Festival Postponed Due to Waterlogged Site

The Hlth is Wlth Festival which was due to take place between 31 May-2 June with headliners Joe Wicks and Mr Motivator has had to be postponed due to the waterlogged ground at Mill Meadows where it was due to be held.
JJ from Eight Ray Music who was organising the event said, “Over the past 12/18 months, the UK has experienced record rainfall, and unfortunately, this has led to significant waterlogging of the ground at Mill Meadows. Sitting by the beautiful River Thames in Henley also means the grounds at Mill Meadows are slightly more inclined to be waterlogged as the pictures. After careful consideration and discussions with our Production and Logistics partners, we’ve realized that holding the festival in its current state could potentially cause extensive damage to the beautiful grounds.  We’re committed to protecting and preserving Mill Meadows for all residents and users, and we wish to avoid any harm that could affect its usage for months to come.”
The Friday night comedy gala organised by Honk! will still be going ahead at the Rugby Club with headliners including Fern Brady, Colin Hoult and Leah Davis.
JJ added, “We’re still as excited as ever to bring you an incredible festival experience in September 2025. By rescheduling, we’re ensuring a safer and more enjoyable environment for everyone involved. A September event in future years is dryer and safer, Thus avoiding the back end of winter/spring rainy unpredictability and landing towards the end of summer.”
