Many revellers mentioned how much they enjoyed the themed cartoons, which where shown alongside a more traditional display of rowing paintings and prints. Around a third of the cartoons on show were sold.
Clive Goddard, who was instrumental in organising the event, tells us that he hopes the PCO will be able to do the same thing at Henley next year.
The organisation is also hoping to bring themed exhibitions to other key events in next year’s social calendar: perhaps tennis cartoons for Wimbledon, floral cartoons for the Chelsea Flower Show, or music cartoons for the Proms.
