FOLLOWING on from what organisers have hailed as the most successful Henley Literary Festival yet
FOLLOWING on from what organisers have hailed as the most successful Henley Literary Festival yet — with ticket sales up 11 per cent on 2014 — lovers of literature are being invited to become a “Friend of the Festival”.
Benefits include a Friends-only priority booking period, early announcement of next year’s festival line-up, and email alerts for new ticket releases and special events — such as the forthcoming talk by Sir Terry Wogan at the Christ Church Centre on Monday, November 23.
A festival spokesman said: “More than 40 events sold out last year and several in the past sold out before tickets became available to the general public. Being a Friend is your best chance to secure tickets for the year’s most popular talks.”
An added benefit of membership is a range of exclusive discounts and offers from the festival’s partners — including the Quince Tree Cafe, Hotel du Vin, Strada, CAU, the River and Rowing Museum, St Audrey’s Gift and Art Market and WIGG Hairdressing.
Membership costs £35 and runs from November 2, 2015, until October 31, 2016 — but “early birds” signing up before Monday, November 30, will save £5.
