Caught by the River Thames is a remarkable new music, arts and nature festival. Bringing together a truly inspirational gathering of bands and brewers, authors and artists, thinkers and drinkers, Caught by the River Thames will be part gig, part literary gathering and part nature symposium. Over two days, it will bridge the previously un-spanned gap between psychedelic high-summer rock’n’roll concert and Springwatch. It will unearth archival London audio-history and provide poetry in the total serenity of a Victorian chapel; play host to jump-up party music from the four corners of the world while holding a low-impact, locally sourced Ten Mile Beer Festival.
