In spring 2021, wildlife cameraman Jack Perks ran a crowdfunding campaign to make a one hour, cinema-quality film that showcased the hidden stories of British fish; everything from gobies to grayling and salmon to sharks. Jack assembled an extraordinarily talented crew of editors, composers, consultants and camera operators, including Jeremy Wade (of River Monsters fame) who narrated the film. After two years in production, we are proud to congratulate Jack and his colleagues by presenting the London Premiere.

Kevin Parr is a writer, angler and amateur naturalist. His books include the critically acclaimed The Quiet Moon and Rivers Run. He is a regular contributor to BBC Countryfile magazine and podcast and has written for The Telegraph, The Independent and Caught by the River among others.

About the venue:

The Ivy House Community Pub was saved from developers nearly ten years ago, but has long held a reputation as a favoured venue for live events. Recently voted in the Top 10 pubs in London by Time Out, and as the top pub in the Southwark by CAMRA, it is renowned for its almost intact 1930s interior, its friendly atmosphere and great beer! All just 10 minutes bus from Peckham Rye Station (343) or East Dulwich Station (484), or 12 minutes walk from Nunhead Station.

Fallon’s Angler is a fishing magazine that champions nature and our outside spaces, and celebrates the telling of the angling story through original, long-form writing with a strong, narrative and visual feel.
