Caught by the River Social Club

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.

New Social Exhibtion



SOCIAL/CHANGE is a collection of selected work by Mark James_Works. An artist, designer and filmmaker. 

His work includes art direction, video direction, photography, illustration and graphic design. He has designed record covers for various artists over the last 20 years. His conceptual work is inspired by a mix of popular culture and social commentary and has gained a reputation for being challenging and controversial.  

He made news headlines around the world on numerous occasions with his artwork. From a football hooligan action figure in 2004, which was condemned by the FA, to his phallic chicken shop branding that went viral in 2014. He again hit the headlines in 2016 by faking a meteor falling over South Wales as part of an art installation for Cardiff Contemporary Arts Festival.
