The English Season, like the works of Vivaldi, is dazzling. This spectacular round of parties and sport naturally includes Henley Royal Regatta—and this year our Members are invited to watch the rowing, drink Champagne and enjoy a delicious lunch at a private CountryClubuk party within The Hidden Garden, an elegant newcomer at the heart of the world’s most famous and prestigious regatta. This will be a fashionably sophisticated place in which to relax and enjoy the Henley Regatta experience.
Henley is the perennial English river party, an extravaganza of giant young rowers, blue-and-white marquees, gentlemen wearing striped blazers and boaters, and ladies in their summer dresses. It is also of course about serious rowing: the cream of the world’s sportsmen will be there in this, the 180th anniversary of the Regatta’s founding in 1839 by J D Bishop, of the Leander Club. And situated on the Berkshire river bank, five minutes from Henley town centre and just past the Stewards’ Enclosure, The Hidden Garden is a new venue launching at this year’s Regatta.
