Henley Royal Regatta 2021

Henley Royal Regatta is well known as one of the most prestigious regattas in the world, a highlight of the summer rowing calendar and the UK’s social season.

Visited by more than 300,000 people each year, Henley Royal Regatta boasts over 300 races across six days of elite sporting competition.

First held 1839, the event has been held annually ever since, with the exception of the years affected by the two World Wars and the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Originally staged by the Mayor and people of Henley as a public attraction with a fair and other amusements, the emphasis rapidly changed so that competitive amateur rowing became its main purpose.


For the event’s much anticipated return in 2021, following its cancellation due to the coronavirus in 2020, Cube provided 51 hand sanitising stations in total, including a mix of one dispenser and 2 dispenser (one on each side) stations.

Cube’s ‘Don’t Pass It On’ hand sanitiser station initiative, initially launched at the beginning 2020 when the threat of Covid-19 was starting to be taken seriously the world over, provides a portable solution for events to help and encourage visitors to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus. The fully brandable stations offer a highly visible opportunity for brand alignment with a critical public health communication and are complete with stainless steel dispensers and hand sanitising gel.

Cube also created the artwork for the station walls which included the Henley Royal Regatta logo and regatta blue colour scheme. The stations were strategically positioned around the event’s enclosure, outside toilets, bars and enquiry desk, encouraging maximum engagement of visitors and staff.

Throughout the event, the Cube team were on hand, ensuring all the stations were working correctly and topped up with gel as needed.

‘Don’t Pass It On’ Hand Sanitiser Stations

‘Don’t Pass It On’ Hand Sanitiser Stations


Cube’s ‘Don’t Pass It On!’ hand sanitiser stations have provided many public venues with a simple method to support hand sanitation and help mitigate the spread of Coronavirus. Initiated by Cube at the beginning of 2020, when Covid-19 was posing a world-wide threat but no lockdowns had been announced, the hand sanitiser stations were first trialled and tested in March at Twickenham for the Six Nations Championship and at Cheltenham Racecourse for The Festival. Many enquiries followed since, which resulted, and continues to do so, in Cube’s hand sanitiser units being deployed at venues across the UK, including sports stadiums and clubs, festivals, exhibition centres, hospitals, airports, supermarkets and many other businesses and organisations.

The initial hand sanitiser unit, the first of its kind, was designed with portability in mind and manufactured to order in the UK. It offered, and continues to do so, a highly visible public health communication opportunity to encourage engagement and provide an effective means of cleaning hands and reducing the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

*Update (Jan 2022)

With hand hygiene still considered the single most important method of preventing cross infection, we have seen an unprecedented demand for our hand sanitiser station initiative during the past two years. Our initial stations are still widely used at many well-known venues. We have also designed, manufactured and sourced other hand sanitiser products which have been proven equally popular. Whilst the coronavirus pandemic is still very much a threat across the world, we’re delighted we are able to continue to offer hand sanitising solutions to venues and event organisers across the globe together with our award-winning and sustainable portable building solutions.
