As winter turns to spring today – we’re excited for the summer months ahead.
A real highlight to our summer is Sea Change Festival down in Totnes.
Hosted by our dear friends at The Drift Record Shop, the festival takes place across multiple venues in the beautiful setting of Totnes.
It’s become an August bank holiday weekend staple in the Heavenly diary and this years line-up is already shaping up brilliantly.
As the good folk at Sea Change say:
“It’s a weekend of thrilling music, inspiring words, delicious food & wet drinks.”
We would say that’s perfection…snap up a ticket folks.
Line-up & tickets here.
Every festival is really a mini holiday…and the delights found at Port Eliot Festival, Cornwall definitely warrant an extra day off.
If your thinking of coming along to this great summer event, a staple in our calendar, we highly recommend you arrive early for Thursday’s nights musical treats.
Our friends at Caught by the River open events by the river Tiddy with live performances from Gwenno, 77:78, Creatures, audiobooks and headliner Baxter Dury.

Our good buddies at The Quietus have decided it’s about time they hosted a new regular social event in the heart of W1.
Here’s why they are doing it, and, check out the great band they have headlining!!
Goat Girl headline the very first Quietus Social night next week.
After years, nay decades, of going to The Social to meet, eat, drink, dance, listen to great writers and hear great music, The Quietus is collaborating with the beloved venue for an ongoing series of gigs and get-togethers: The Quietus Social. (Took us ages to think of that name.)
Every three months – spring! summer! autumn! winter! – there’ll be bands, DJs, special little treats and very special guests. The first one is NEXT WEEK – on Wednesday 7 March – and tickets will be £5. We’ve just confirmed Goat Girl as our headliners and we are very excited. There’ll be other special guests and special treats, and we can’t wait to see you there.
Go get them tickets!
Caught by the River will be putting in an appearance at this year’s inaugural Kaleidoscope Festival, which takes place at Alexandra Palace on 21 July.

Caught by the River return to The Horse Hospital in March for a night of film, music & spoken word…
It is our pleasure to announce that our next evening of film, talk and music will take place on Tuesday 13 March at London’s Horse Hospital. Featuring:
– Dead Flows the Don: A magical odyssey up-river by David Bramwell. Mixing moving image, music and storytelling, David takes a personal journey up the Don to uncover the occult secrets of our waterways, battling his own thalassophobia (fear of what lurks beneath). David is an author, a musician and a Sony Award winning presented for BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4. (Watch the trailer for Dead Flows the Don here.)
– A live performance from Jim Ghedi. Living in the Moss Valley – the abandoned and forgotten area on the edgelands of South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire – it makes perfect sense that Jim Ghedi’s music feels both fluidly transient yet deeply rooted to a sense of place. Jim’s second albu ‘A Hymn for Ancient Land’ was released in January 2018, and gained 4* in the FT, who described it as “landscape music, a close relative of landscape art.”
DJ on the night will be Stephen Cracknell (The Memory Band); MC will be John Andrews.
Tickets are £8 in advance and available here.
LAUNCH PARTY THIS THURSDAY 1st FEBRUARY
