Join us at our favourite watering hole – The Social, on London’s Little Portland Street – for a night of music, poetry and film.
Taking place on Wednesday 18 October, the evening will feature a rare live performance from July Skies, as well as a reading from poet Robert Selby, and a DJ set from Kate Carr. We will also be screening Diary of the Last Man, Eamon Bourke’s imaginative film-portrait of the writer and poet Robert Minhinnick, which charts a walk between the mouths of the rivers Cynffig and Ogwr on the south coast of Wales. Minhinnick will perform after the screening. (more…)
Tickets available here or in person from Coventry Cathedral Gift Shop.

“…a series of walks-and-talks and a swim through the Stour Valley during the summer of 2017 with local experts on the river’s connections with ecology, literature, wildlife, writers and artists.
A project by Stuart Bowditch and Ruth Philo with the people and communities along the River Stour which flows through Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Essex.
Renowned artist/illustrator Ralph Steadman and filmmaker/long-term CBTR contributor Ceri Levy are back with another collaborative publication. Following in the footsteps of 2012’s Extinct Boids and 2015’s Nextinction, Critical Critters is jam-packed with nonsense beasts, irreverent jokes, a diary-style record of the creative mayhem, and around 100 spectacular illustrations by Ralph of critically endangered mammals, insects, fish, lizards and trees.
We, Ralph, and Ceri will be launching the book at Rough Trade East on Thursday 20 July with a talk, Q&A, and signing. The event takes place from 7pm, and is free to attend.
