Caught by the River Avon


Caught by the River are heading to the banks of The Avon in Bristol for their next event in December.

Taking place in BS1’s chocolate-factory-turned-arts-space Centrespace, CBTR have teamed up with The Letterpress Collective and Friendly Records for another lovely line-up of readings and music.

The line-up includes:

– a reading from up-and-coming Northern Irish nature writer and essayist Kerri ní Dochartaigh, whose debut book will be published by Canongate in 2021;

– Richard King discussing his latest book The Lark Ascending – a radical history of Britain’s natural landscapes and the musical movements they have inspired, published earlier this year – with Max Porter;

– Emma Warren and Rob Gallagher discussing the intersections of their respective books Make some Space and The Dance Floors of England, both of which examine the importance of dancefloors and arts spaces as community hubs;

– Max Porter, author of Grief is the Thing With Feathers and Lanny, reading from new work, and appearing in conversation with Kerri ní Dochartaigh;

– MC Emma Warren;

– Tunes from Stephen “Spoonful” Parker.

Advance tickets cost £15, nab one over the counter at Friendly or via this link.
