Caught by the River

Subculture: NeoAncients

24th April 2024

Hand-picked by site friend John Best, next weekend sees a smattering of Caught by the River contributors join the lineup for Subculture: NeoAncients festival in Stroud.

In ‘Circuitous Routes: Navigating Folklore and Fantasy’, Mark Hooper and The Memory Band’s Stephen Cracknell trace out the role of ancient pathways in the collective imagination.

Elsewhere, Roy Wilkinson hosts his infamous music and nature pub quiz, and Richard Norris follows up a conversation about his memoir Strange Things Are Happening with a DJ set based on his recent Caught by the River Spoken Word & Nature Disco mix.

The wider festival includes talks and music from the likes of Bridget Christie, Jarvis Cocker, Jeremy Deller, Zakia Sewell, Gruff Rhys, Ben Edge and Daisy Rickman. Find more information and tickets here.
