Henley Festival 2010
Since first setting up home along the banks of the Thames over 25 years ago, Henley Festival has established itself as a unique festival experience, bringing together world class musicians, performers and artists over five days in one of England's most beautiful settings.
A festival of both style and substance, Henley's showcase spans classical music, rock, pop, jazz, opera and folk, with our headline acts gracing Henley's famous floating stage.
Show-stopping visual art and dance, comedy from leading performers and the finest cuisine ensure that the music is not the only thing that makes Henley unforgettable.
Will Young shot to fame after winning Pop Idol eight years ago.
Eight million records and four platinum albums later, Will Young is considered one of the most successful pop singers of his generation.
One of the world's most in-demand singers, loved for his style, panache and sense of fun as much as for his magnificent bass-baritone voice.
He is joined by the Philharmonia, conductor Gareth Jones and the London Welsh Chorale for an evening of opera and popular songs.
