Caught by the River

Event announcement: Caught by the River Calder

23rd November 2018

We’re very pleased to announce that we’re heading to one of the country’s very best venues for a whole day of talks, readings and music inspired by the natural world.

Caught by the River Calder, taking place at the Trades Club, Hebden Bridge on Saturday 30th March 2019, is split into two separate events – a daytime session centred around readings and conversations from some of our favourite writers, poets and long-time contributors – and an evening event focusing on music and field recordings, with performances by Hannah Peel & Will Burns and Erland Cooper. Heavenly Jukebox DJs will play between and after the musicians and into the night.

The daytime event (doors 10:30am) will feature:

Hannah Peel & Will Burns in conversation with Elizabeth Alker (BBC6 Music; BBC Radio 3’s Unclassified) about their collaborative work Chalk Hill Blue.

Luke Turner reading from his memoir Out of the Woods, with a site-specific soundtrack from Spaceship Mark

Tim Dee talking ‘Place’ with guest Rob Cowen

Amy Liptrot reading from her forthcoming second book

– Readings from Horatio Clare & Kevin Boniface

– MC John Andrews

The evening event (doors 8:00pm) will feature:

– the debut live performance of Chalk Hill Blue from Hannah Peel & Will Burns

– a live set from Erland Cooper

– Heavenly Jukebox DJs

Tickets for the daytime event cost £12 (Trades Club members £10); evening event £16 (Trades Club members £14). A limited number of combined tickets are available for £23.

A previously announced Caught by the River Calder event was due to take place in January 2016 but was cancelled due to massive local flooding – we’re beginning our weather control rituals just after Christmas.
