Henley Life - page 5

...to the Christmas issue of
Henley Life
Magazine. The festive
season is now upon us with
parties, events and Christmas
lights illuminating our lovely
market square.
This month we have the image
of an iconic rock star gracing our
cover. We interview
photographer Scarlet Page, who
reveals how she captured
Chrissie Hynde’s relaxed off-
stage persona in this
photoshoot. Discover more
about Scarlet’s life as a rock’n’
roll photographer and Henley
mum of two, on pages 10 to 13.
Another notable musician
featured this month is Henley
born and bred Megan Henwood,
and her latest album is reviewed
on page 15. Continuing on the
arts front we have some
highlights coming up at Henley’s
very own Kenton Theatre, and
our
My Henley Life
this month
features Henley jeweller and
anti-plastics campaigner, Julia
Carey.
Of course, as it is coming up to
Christmas there is plenty of
choice on where to
spend time. We recently
enjoyed an unusual dining
experience in igloos at the
Coppa Club at Sonning (see page
16). For your chance to win an
overnight package at The Great
House , enjoy the wonderful
menu on offer at the Coppa Club
and riverside walks with your
dog turn to page 23.
On the home front, we offer
decorating tips, with a focus on
tree types and how to look after
them and visit Christmas Tree
Farm at Christmas Common for
lots of festive inspiration.
There are gift ideas for all the
family and their precious pets,
starting with some beauty gifts
on page 21.
Fashion goes back to black for
our pick of the best styles for
elegant dressing. Remember to
shop locally when you can to
support our thriving community
of makers, artists and musicians.
So, from all of us here at
Henley
Life
, rock’n’roll it’s Christmas!
We hope you have a cool
Yuletide and a peaceful New
Year...
