CANCELLED Community Regatta Day 2020

Henley Business School regrets to announce that we will be cancelling our annual Community Regatta Day scheduled to take place on Saturday 4 July 2020.

In light of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis our primary concern is to protect the health of our University community and, by extension, our wider community including our supporters. Alongside this, without the atmosphere of the Regatta we do not feel that we would be able to deliver the experience our guests deserve. We therefore believe that cancelling is the most sensible option.

If you have booked a ticket for this event, we will be issuing refunds, if you have any questions please email alumni@henley.ac.uk.


We are delighted to present our Community Regatta Day to you, your family and friends. This event is an annual highlight of our calendar and is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the best that Greenlands has to offer. What’s more? It coincides with the spectacular Henley Royal Regatta. A day full of fun for the entire family with an array of children’s entertainment to live music and scrumptious food, all enjoyed on the banks of the River Thames.

Please note gates open at 11:00 with most entertainment starting at 12:00.
