A Caught by the River Social Club: Farsley will take place at the West Yorkshire town’s Constitutional Club on Thursday 6th February 2020, and will feature:

– Stepping into the dark: a unique audio exploration of landscapes local to the venue by field recording royalty Chris Watson (David Attenborough’s right-hand sound man);

– Much-revered poet and non-fiction writer Kathleen Jamie discussing her most recent book, Surfacing, with Amy Liptrot;

Kevin Boniface sharing comic snatches from his daily postal round;

– Longstanding Caught by the River co-conspirator and purveyor of vintage fishing tackle John Andrews as Master of Ceremonies;

– Caught by the River DJs spinning tunes ‘til close. 

Farsley Constitutional is a former Conservative Club, now a self-professed “club for working persons” to which membership costs £1 a year.

Full price tickets are £10. We are also offering a suspended ticket option for this event – these are tickets which can be bought ahead for someone else, or, if you’d like to come along but can’t afford to pay, ones which can be claimed for free, no questions asked. Tickets can be purchased here. Suspended tickets can be claimed by emailing

This latest announcement comes after two previously announced events – at Todmorden’s Golden Lion on 20 November (with Amy Liptrot, Zaffar Kunial, The Willowherb Review, Roy, and MC Anna Wood) and Huddersfield’s Small Seeds on 21 November (with Amy Liptrot, Jessica J. Lee, Toria Garbutt, Kevin Boniface, MC Anna Wood and live music from John Head). More information/tickets here.
