Catering provider Sodexo will provide hospitality services at Henley Royal Regatta 2021 as rowing supporters and crews return to the world-famous event.
The annual rowing event on the River Thames – organised by a body of stewards who are largely former rowers themselves – is due to be held from 11-15 August. The event was cancelled last year owing to the Covid-19.
Sodexo has operated the hospitality for the Henley Royal Regatta since 2013. It is the first greenfield event that Sodexo chefs will have operated at since the beginning of the pandemic.
The company will serve up to 500 hospitality covers a day across the Fawley Meadows Restaurant and Riverside Chalets and private dining on Temple Island. The hospitality team expects to welcome more than 1,700 people during the entire event.
Chris Bray, CEO Sports & Leisure for Sodexo UK & Ireland, said: “Our teams have been working tirelessly to develop new experiences and we are looking forward to welcoming back our guests to this wonderful event.”
Daniel Grist, secretary and chief Executive, Henley Royal Regatta, said: “We know that Sodexo’s attention to detail contributes to the unique atmosphere of Henley Royal Regatta and will make it a day to remember!”
