Wharfs, wheelhouses and watermen: the history of Hobbs of Henley – online talk

26th November 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

This talk by Dr Simon Wenham, author of a new book written to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Hobbs of Henley, explores the history of the firm, one of the best-known boating businesses on the Thames.  Hear how a 17th century family from Hambleden became not only notable pillars of the establishment in Henley and integral to the fabric of the regatta town, but also established a market-leading hospitality company.  The talk will include a Q & A with Managing Director Jonathan Hobbs.

This talk will take place via Zoom.  We will contact you via email with instructions on how to redeem your ticket and access the event.
