World Music

Chris Garrick and The Budapest Cafe Orchestra

Fri 26 September –  8pm


The Budapest Café Orchestra (with Chris Garrick) play traditional folk and gypsy music from across the Balkans and Russia. In a wide-ranging programme of music evoking vivid images of Tzigane fiddle maestros, Budapest café life and gypsy campfires – with a few surprises along the way – it’s good enough to make you want to book a holiday along the Danube! Chris Garrick is one of Europe’s most celebrated jazz violinists and band member, Eddie Hession, is a supreme accordion champion of Great Britain.

We had a Dream Exhibition celebrates the first 25 years of Riverhouse. Designed by Simon Dray and featuring original photographs, designs and documents, this exhibition follows the realising of the dream of Riverhouse – from its genesis on a kitchen floor back in 1986 through the ups and downs, blood, sweat and tears that brought it to being in 1989.

Alongside the storyboards are specially commissioned new photographs by Kate Griffin and Ian Olsson. These are available to purchase in the form of an accompanying book.

The Riverhouse is a beautiful space converted from an old 18th century barn into a theatre/ music venue and workshop space. In addition to the barn the Riverhouse also has a stunning gallery space, a craft studio and a cafe and bar area serving delicious home cooked food and cakes all year round.

Our programme of events throughout the year is fantastically diverse. From Classical concerts, to street dance classes, from Stitch workshops to Jazz and folk music.

Café now open Every Day 10am-4pm (Mon to Sun)
