The River Launches in Bangkok
On Wednesday the 27th of November 2013, at 7:30pm, The River hosted it’s very first event “The Gathering” in the heart of Bangkok, Thailand!
The news reports around the world continue to report on Bangkok streets being filled with increasing numbers of demonstrators determined to topple the present government! The situation is escalating and already resulting in fatalities.

This “epicentre” of the battle for a “new Thailand” was the district of Pathumwan. This is where the nation’s business, higher education, entertainment, transportation and technology are centred.
The venue for our lanch of Bangkok work was LIDO Theatre, which is in close proximity to the huge MBK shopping mall.
The River Team travelled from the North and the South of Thailand to undertake an event far beyond their natural ability!
