Sir Steve Redgrave, Chairman of the Regatta’s Committee of Management said:
 
“In a year sadly overshadowed by COVID-19, when we are unable to host a Regatta, we will be pleased to celebrate what makes Henley Royal Regatta so special with our Henley at Home weekend. We think that the wider HRR family will want to mark the weekend so we are adding a schedule of interviews and outstanding rowing action from the last five years to support the special atmosphere.
 
Together with official champagne partner Moët & Chandon, HRR has teamed up with award-winning British Fine Foods, to create a wonderful selection of bespoke Henley Royal Regatta picnic hampers to be enjoyed over the weekend. Customers can pre-order from today for deliveries from 1st July.

Henley at Home will also be celebrated across social media platforms. The Henley family is encouraged to post images that show their parties, outfits and picnics in their gardens, using #HenleyAtHome in order to share the enjoyment.
