The Henley Literary Festival was founded in 2007 and takes place at venues across Henley-on-Thames, including an elegant Georgian mansion, the Victorian Town Hall and the Kenton Theatre.
Please note: I have no commercial relationship with Henley Literary Festival. I’m just a book lover and book blogger keen to support my local literary festival.
