Brand new music, arts and literature festival Caught By The River Thames is hoping to welcome 5,000 people per day to Fulham Palace for its inaugural celebrations.

The event, taking place on Saturday August 6 and Sunday August 7, boasts not only great musical headliners - including Super Furry Animals and Low - but also literary talent, poets including Kate Tempest, and nature talks, as well as an array of film, arts and activities.

There will also be food and drink, including a '10-mile beer garden', with an emphasis on local brewers and produce from within a 10-mile radius of the Fulham area.

The man bringing the festivals to the venue said he intends to bring Glastonbury to west London in an interview with getwestlondon .

Festival organiser, Jeff Barrett, said: "What makes it so exciting is that it's brand new, this is the first year, and it's at a site where nothing like this has ever happened before.

"I've lived in Shepherd's Bush for the best part of thirty years, and I've been over to Bishop's Park but I've never walked through Fulham Palace before... I knew it was there, but I didn't ever really pay it a great deal of attention."

"Caught By The River started life as a simple blog , about nine years ago; it was just us blogging about what we were up to, mostly things of an outdoor persuasion, whether that was fishing or just spending time outdoors, or environmental concerns, but we were also speaking about other things we were into - music, literature and the like, and the blog grew and nine years later it's turned into an online magazine.

"The touchstones for it are nature, culture and arts, and I think that's going to be the touchstones for what this festival's going to be. It's not exclusively a music festival, it's not exclusively a literature festival, but it's a mix of all of those things."

Beth Orton is also on the line-up

The festival will be set on the banks of the River Thames , in one of London's best-kept secrets, Fulham Palace.

Mr Barrett said: "I walked through the palace and saw this huge lawn, which was a dream come true; it's right on the Thames Path, it's a ten minute walk from Putney Bridge station, a brief 20-minute walk from Hammersmith , and it was just joy-of-joys!

Mr Barrett said: "The headline act on the Sunday is Super Furry Animals, playing their only London show this year. On the Saturday night we've got an American band called Low; the last time they played over here they sold out two nights at The Roundhouse.

"We've got a band called Temples playing on the day with Super Furry Animals. Again, it's their only London show until probably December. We've got Beth Orton, back with a brand new record.

"We've got a chap called Mulatu Astatke, he's known as the founder of 'Ethio-Jazz'; in the mid-60s he was a jazz musician who created an Ethiopian take on jazz music, and he still does it.

"Me and my family went to see him at the Royal Festival Hall a couple of years ago, a sell-out show, and it was the live highlight of the year without a doubt."

There are still more acts and activities to be added to the programme, including the Faber Poetry Chapel, The Museum of British Folklore and the Caught by the River bookshop.

Mr Barrett said: "I would like it to be embraced by the community, I would like it to be something that becomes a regular event, and we're going to keep everything as local as we can, for two reasons, one being, we wanted it to be our part of London, but also just the green footprint as well.

"What we're trying to present here is something unique and something different, something stimulating, and something which cares environmentally."

"I'd say every single person that's going to be there is going to enrich you in some which way or the other; I think as a Londoner or if you're going to visit London for the weekend, it's a no-brainer!"

Weekend tickets to the festival are available for £99. Day tickets are available for £55.
