THE first Create Henley festival has been hailed a success.
Hundreds of people visited the arts and crafts exhibitions, talks, demonstrations and workshops that took place at various venues over the weekend.
There was also a Love Local market in the town hall and a farmers’ market in Market Place on Sunday.
Town councillor Pam Phillips, who came up with the idea of the festival to encourage visitors during the off-peak season, said: “As it was the first Create, I thought it was a great success.
“The sun was shining, which brought a lot of people into Henley anyway, and the quality of the crafts available was absolutely top class.”
