Family Day

Come and Join us at The Barn Bar with Norden Farm, Centre for the Arts and The Azure Theatre School

Family Day Sunday 7th July 2019


In 2019 we were delighted to include the following in Sunday’s activity schedule:


At The Barn Bar, half way along the racing course.  There is plenty of space in the Barn Bar Garden and an area fenced from the river for the little ones.

Four days of exciting action, in and out of the water culminates on the fifth day of Henley Royal Regatta, Finals Day.  Sunday 7th July 2019 is the perfect opportunity to bring the whole family down and soak up every last bit of Regatta fun for another year and enjoy the complimentary children’s activities and area.

This year, we have an exciting array of events and activities planned, guaranteed to keep the whole family busy all day.  Free entry into the exclusive Barn Bar Garden, where Norden Farm will be providing fun art and craft activites and The Azure Theatre School will be doing some fantastic dance numbers.

There is plenty of space for everyone, delicious lunches and snacks to fuel up on and great views of the racing from the riverside garden.  There is also the Riverside Marketplace for some retail therapy with boutique and local Henley brands, and lots of foodie delights!

So if you’re wanting to bring the family, there can be no better day than Sunday 7th July – ‘Finals and Family Day’.

Car Parking available nearby or why not take the River Taxi from Hobbs in Henley town.

The Azure Theatre School

For the first time in 2018, our friends at The Azure Theatre and Dance School joined us in the Barn Bar for Family and Finals day.

A group of talented dancers performed their socks off.  It was such a hit that this year the talented Azure gang will be performing again.
