The Summer party of the year will this year have alfresco gourmet dining courtesy of the legendary father and son chefs Albert and Michel Roux Jr. They will be at Henley for this year’s festival, held from the 6th-10th of July. This 5 night, black tie and star studded event takes place on the banks of the Thames in the stunning town of Henley.
This duo of super chefs are offering classical French cuisine, think Steak Tartar and Snails, in a typically English tent on a lawn which will house their exclusive Riverside restaurant. The prices will be starting from approximately £100 per head for a three-course meal. What price can you put on a meal cooked for you by these two masters of gastronomy?
While these family chefs are headlining on the river banks, acts including Tom Jones, Joules Holland, Blake and Rumer will be performing on a floating stage on the river Thames. Reserve your Festival tickets now to meet the father and son team, who will be weaving their Gallic magic around the tables, chatting to guests and festival goers.
Culture seekers who prefer informal dining can opt for the less formal Terrace Restaurant and Café du Soir or Heston Blumenthal’s Hinds Head at Henley, serving venison burgers and chips made famous at his historical 15th century Hinds Head pub in Bray, which has attracted international accolades.
‘This is a festival both for the connoisseur and the party goer. International performers combine with a jewel box of spectacular acts throughout the five days in a magical location on the banks of the Thames.’ Stewart Collins, Artistic Director.
‘There’s nothing like the Henley Festival. The beautiful setting and the intimate performances make it the best summer party you can imagine,’ says Tom Jones.
