River Thames Festival
Taking place from 6th to 7th August on the banks of the River Thames at Fulham Palace, the River Thames Festival will delight audiences with a diverse mix of music, the arts, the natural world and even better, decent beer. Just think gigs, literary gatherings, bands and brewers, authors and artists, thinkers and drinkers and you will get the picture!
Visitors can enjoy listening to legendary Minnesota trio Low and the fantastic Super Furry Animals. Adding to the party atmosphere are Psych rockers Temples and North Malian Imarhan’s blend of African funk and 70s pop. From Liverpool with love, will be psych-pop three piece Stealing Sheep who never fail to disappoint audiences.
For visitors interested in film and photography The Palace Picturehouse will be featuring the Museum of British Folklore, The Idler Academy and the Canal & River Trust. It will be a fascinating experience.
Across all the stages of the festival there will be talks and readings. Leading the speakers are Kate Tempest and one of the UK’s best-loved naturalists, Wildlife television presenter Chris Packham.
Joining them will be many of Caught by the River’s regular contributors including author Amy Liptrot; Paul Kingsnorth and talented audio-historian London Sound Survey.
