We're delighted to annouce that we've partnered with JuJu ('Best Late Night Bar' at the London Club & Bar Awards 2013) to host a series of parties at Juju's pop up bar at Henley Royal Regatta on Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th July.
The 1839 Regatta took place on a single afternoon but proved so popular with oarsmen that the racing lasted for two days from 1840. In 1886 the Regatta was extended to three days and to four in 1906. Since 1928 its increased popularity meant entries exceeded the permitted numbers in several events, and so Qualifying Races are now held in the week before the Regatta to reduce the number of entries to the permitted maximum. In 1986 the Regatta was extended to five days, with an increase in the maximum entry for certain events.
Henley Royal Regatta is undoubtedly the best known regatta in the world and is both one of the highlights of the summer sporting calendar and the social season. Watch this space as we release details shortly!
