‘EXPRESSWAY’ will once again take over the Keeper’s House for an Americana themed evening of music, film, and food curated by the Academicians’ Room and byNWR.
Nicolas will introduce the evening with a special screening followed by acoustic sets from Black Deer Festival musicians, our other collaborators for the evening.
The Academicians’ Room, our private members’ club, will be transformed into a bluegrass lounge, with music from the early 1920s to the 50s to present day and DJs will take over the Keeper’s House restaurant on the lower ground floor.
Cocktails and classic drinks will be flowing from the bar to the Keeper’s House garden, and themed food will be available to purchase – all infused with a hearty dose of country and western influence.
Members of the Academicians’ Room, please call 020 7300 8090 to book. Friends of the RA can book by phone or online.

Presented in 2018 by Nicolas Winding Refn, byNWR is a revolutionary website, providing an opportunity to experience the rare, the forgotten or the unknown in an unpredictable and unconventional way.
The platform is set up like a publication, with quarterly volumes of original content divided into three monthly chapters, each of those chapters having been inspired by an accompanying fully restored film. One of the key concepts of byNWR is that it is free of charge.
Black Deer Festival
Held in the garden of England, the award-winning Black Deer Festival offers a three-day celebration of Americana, country and western music.
The founders, Gill Tee and Deborah Shilling, have produced and directed much-loved festivals with music legends including Bob Dylan, The Eagles and Neil Young. Their lifelong love affair with country music and the authentic Americana aesthetic offers a compelling blend of originality, experience and passion, shaping Black Deer into an exciting and emerging force on the UK festival scene.
