Salena Godden in conversation with Claire Callender

Salena Godden joined us at Sea Change 2019 as part of the amazing Rough Trade Books session that also included Martha Sprackland, Ana da Silva and Charlotte Newman. We were thrilled to capture Salena in conversation later that afternoon with our dear friend and neighbour Claire Callender, covering life, pessimism and inevitably death.

How to survive as an independent festival in 2019...

We spoke to Daniel Dylan Wray at Huck Magazine about the current UK scene… spoiler alert, we have no answers!

With more and more festivals crowding the cultural calendar, it’s hard to survive, let alone stand out. But among the noise, a number of DIY events are carving out their own distinct space – thriving in the process.
