On Monday 3 July, Caught by the River poet-in-residence and all round great gal Martha Sprackland hosts the next Faber Social, taking place at The Social on Little Portland Street. She’s put together a fantastic programme for the evening, with readings from Kayo Chingonyi, Sophie Collins, Amina Jama, Melissa Lee-Houghton, Zaffar Kunial, and André Naffis-Sahely. (Those last two names might be familiar to you from our Port Eliot and Good Life Experience lineups for this year.)
Tickets are £8.00 in advance and are available here, along with more info about the event.

It is with deep joy that we share the full lineup for our stage at this year’s Good Life Experience.

The Caught by the River tent is back and better than ever for our third year on site, featuring a tip-top daily programme plus a book and record shop. You can get your tickets here (code CBTR entitles our readers to 10% off).
Hats off as always to Roy Wilkinson for the marvellous artist bios which here follow (more…)
