Barge Fiodra is a unique floating arts venue hosting occasional film screenings. Step aboard when she moors at London’s Limehouse Basin for two watery days of film [01 to 02 MAR 2019].
By RADIANT CIRCUS
Anyone who has visited the RADIANT CIRCUS HQ knows that we float, which is why we are always keen when moving pictures take to the water* (see also our rubbery visit to AIRDRAFT at this year’s London Short Film Festival).
Barge Fiodra is a floating arts venue that tours the canals of London and the South East. The purpose-built wide beam launched in 2017 and also plays home to gallery shows, music and mindfulness matters. For those in the know about such things, she is licensed by the Canal & River Trust as a roving trader, which makes her a legit business to travel the country’s waterways. Fiodra is work and home for liveaboard owner, Bob Chase:
“A purpose built floating home and venue has been my dream since owning my first canal boat in the 1990s. In 2017 this became a reality… Fiodra is both my permanent home on the water and a space for sharing.”
Barge Fiodra will be moored at London’s Limehouse Basin on 01 & 02 MAR 2019 for a short programme of film screenings. If you want to experience the occasionally choppy life of a liveaboard, tickets are still available for the following at the time of posting. As usual, please click quickly.

*THE SMALL PRINT: As accurate as we could make it. Apologies for any errors. Updates & corrections will be made to the online version. Event dates/times are subject to change by the venue/organiser. We try to only list events you can book for at the time of posting: however, some events may still be sold out. Please click quickly! We don’t filter by age/certification: all readers & subscribers should be 18+.
*We also harbour obsessions for any circus/carnival-themed movies (SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES and FREAKS are favourites…) and anything featuring large and/or intelligent apes. Literally anything… We listed RAMPAGE as one of our grind show picks back in APR 2018 with the recommendation to “see it somewhere loud”.
