Don't have time to donate right now?


The exciting, new end of Summer event; Henleys Illuminated Boat Parade sees to round up the annual boating season with a fun-filled event for local residents.

The parade encourages a fleet of vibrantly decorated boats to meander from Fawley
meadows to Henley Bridge with colourful, illuminated properties on both sides of the river
following the course.

The entrants will be judged from the Leander Club, which will be open
for the public to spectate and enjoy in a fun & friendly competition!

We invite locals and boating enthusiasts alike to decorate their boats and come down to see
the parade, all whilst enjoying some hearty food and refreshments from the Leander Club itself and food vendors on site.

The Illuminated Boat Parade will bring a bright and lighthearted new function to the Henley

Although it is not a specific fundraising event, we would like it to be. In our first year, all
revenue was gifted by the organisers at £1000 to the charities The Rivertime Boat Trust and
The Leander Trust.

This year, the chosen charities are Macmillan Cancer Support, The Rivertime Boat Trust and The Leander Trust.

We would like to make the Illuminated Boat Parade into a great annual spectacle to make Henley Proud. At present its funded by the private organisers Chris Taylor and Penny Palmano. With a bit of financial help it can be even more spectacular. Over 40 boats took part and over 2000 people attended the inaugural event in 2022.

We greatly appreciate all your support.
