The Kent Club for London Freemasons is visiting the Henley Royal Regatta on Friday, the 6th of July 2018! The Regatta is a rowing event held annually on the River Thames by the town of Henley-on-Thames, England. Established in 1839, it is regarded as part of the English social season.
Ticket are sold as “couple’s tickets” and include admission for two and all-day catering. Tickets are non-refundable!
Ladies must wear a dress or skirt and blouse with a hemline below the knee. The wearing of a hat or fascinator is encouraged!
- No shirt skirts
- No split skirts
- No trousers
- No culottes
There’s no rule about footwear, but wise ladies wear flat shoes because we’ll mostly be walking on lawns, which can be soft ground if it has rained recently.

Gentlemen must wear a jacket and tie. Suits are permitted, but blazer and flannels is customary. Typically, this means a navy blazer with white or cream flannels, but colourful sports club blazers are encouraged for those who have one.
Inside the Enclosure, gentlemen may not remove their jackets unless specific permission for that day has been announced (which is rare).
Gentlemen are also encouraged to wear hats (typically a straw boater or panama), but this is not obligatory, and “hatlessness” would stand out less than for the ladies.

Non-compliance with the dress code will result in refusal of admission
