Henley Regatta Wednesday 4th July – Sunday 8th July 2018
The Henley Royal Regatta is without a doubt, one of the most well-known and prestigious regattas in the World. This highlight of the sporting calendar lasts over a 5 day period and features over 200 races from international Olympic rowers. To truly enjoy and immerse yourself in this unforgettable event, Team Tactics offer the Henley Regatta Hospitality Package, providing the perfect way for you and your guests to enjoy the rowing festivities.
Our facility is located at The Temple Island Enclosure overlooking Temple Island, this picturesque venue is steeped in history, having originally been built in 1771 as a fishing lodge for Sir Christopher wren. The location has been used since Victorian times for watching the regatta, mainly thanks to its fantastic views of all the days racing or just admiring the breath-taking scenery of Temple Island and Henley town. With the temple marking the start of the regatta you really can’t get a better location to feel immersed in this fantastic event.
Henley-upon-Thames is 7 miles north-east of Reading and 35 miles west of London. If you’re coming westbound on the M4, exit at junction 8/9 and onto the M404, after the third exit leave the M404 and head onto the A3130. This road will take you into Henley.
With trains running regularly to Henley from Paddington, they’re a great travel choice. A revised timetable is created by First Great Western for the entire event to make it that much easier. Not only that, there’s also extra bus services too!
As with many prestigious events, the Henley Royal Regatta is no different with a closely adhered to dress, although the regatta does not have a specific dress code some areas do have strict guidelines. It would be a good idea to loosely follow these rules not only to look the part but you never know where you might get invited.
The Stewards Enclosure Men: Lounge suits or Blazers and Flannels with shirt and tie, basically keep it smart but not dressed for the office. Ladies: Skirts or dresses down to the knee; no trousers, divided skirts or culottes (a little outdated but was founded in the eighteen forties.) Hats are an optional extra although the wearing of large flamboyant headgear can be frowned upon due to it blocking the view of those watching the racing. Don’t forget a lot of the event will be on grass so keep those shoes sensible.
The Regatta Enclosure offers a less formal dress code with those who attend opting for traditional club blazers and rowing apparel.
The draw for the races usually takes place the Saturday before the event. Starting and ending times do tend to vary each year depending on the amount of races but the following table provides a general guide:
|Day||First Race||Last Race|
Henley Regatta After Parties
Henley Royal Regatta is the highlight of the social calendar and provides the perfect opportunity to entertain clients in a luxurious setting. The Regatta is a spectacle of the summer season where spectators are treated to 200 races including the best rowers on the planet. After the races have finished and the sun has set Chinawhite turns into a luxurious party venue for guests. What better way to celebrate a great day of glorious sunshine and sporting entertainment than to party the night away in the renowned evening venue.
The most glamorous Regatta after party will be unfolding in the Chinawhite enclosure with an internationally acclaimed DJ. Previous DJ’s have included Pete Tong, Roger Sanchez and David Morales. A lively crowd of socialites from across the world are drawn together for a long weekend of summer entertaining, corporate hospitality and the legendary after parties. It isn’t just the varsity rowing that is the stand out of the 176 year strong event, but the social activity away from the hustle and bustle of the Thames.
Chinawhite will be returning to the banks of the River Thames for two nights of partying in style on Friday 6th July and Saturday 7th July to finish a perfect day at the most exciting fixture in the social calendar.
