It’s just under a week until team CBTR take to Flintshire for our last festival engagement of the summer – The Good Life Experience, taking place from 15-17 September on the Gladstone estate. As usual, we’ll be boasting a stage jam-packed with talks, poetry, and music, as well as a bookshop stuffed with both newly released and heavily discounted tomes.
We’ve pulled together a mini round-up of auditory delights which highlight some of what’s to be found on our Good Life stage over the weekend (more…)
On Monday 27 November, long-term collaborators Chris Watson and David Attenborough will come together at The British Library to discuss their shared interests and experiences as sound recordists in the natural world. Unmissable, we reckon.

Monday 6 November at The Social, 5 Little Portland Street, London W1.
The Caught by the River Social Club hosts live music from both Marisa Anderson (“A hazy soundtrack to an existential Seventies western” Rolling Stone) and Toby Hay (“The world’s dew gleams on this music, bit the world’s dust swirls through it too” Robert Macfarlane) plus poetry from Martha Sprackland. Earth Recordings’ Kyle Lonsdale DJs and John Andrews MCs.

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…)
