'This year’s River Weekender is another riotous festival of the arts for all ages, from Fri 15-Sun 17 September. Part of the Totally Thames Festival.
The fourth River Weekender (Fri 15-Sun 17 Sept) is a festival of the arts, inspired by the river, by the river in our lovely riverside arts centre. This year, the packed programme includes Barcelona-based Osadia who will perform their very own brand of extraordinary hair sculpture – will you be a pirate or a mermaid? Meanwhile, Watermans has partnered up with North London's ArchWay With Words Book Festival to bring Watermans With Words, an evening of captivating speakers and new writing. Iain Sinclair and Caitlin Davies present their latest books, and Ian Rawes plays vintage recordings of life on the river, while all around Watermans you'll find performances inspired by the Thames and its bridges, from MA writers at the Central School of Speech and Drama, and London poets. And if all that’s making you hungry, Saturday evening sees AVM Curiosities take guests on an olfactory and tasting tour of the River Thames through the ages, according to Vanity Fair it’s ‘London at its crazy-best.’!'
