Caught by the River began as an idea for an online meeting place for pursuits of a distinctly non-digital variety: walking, fishing, looking, thinking, birdsong and beer, adventure and poetry. Gradually a website paying homage to life’s small pleasures appeared and attracted a large number of followers. From these humble beginnings in 2007, Caught by the River have published a number of books and staged festivals around the country.
Caught by the River, the online gathering place has now announced an offline meeting place with the creation of The Social Club, a season of monthly events, bringing its many obsessions to live audiences. Caught by the River Social Club will take place each month at The Social in Little Portland Street, London.
