Herefordshire Life Through A Lens: Stories from the Hop Yards (U)

A Catcher Media project

Communities around the county have been enjoying this hugely popular film from Catcher Media. Inspired by the rediscovered Derek Evans photographic collection this film brims with archive photos and films alongside newly recorded interviews. A requisite of British beer, with their evocative aroma, hops have been an integral part of county life for centuries. Listen to stories of days past and present from pickers, farmers, traders and brewers. “I cannot recall an occasion when the audience was so immersed in what they were seeing.. People around me hung on every word, laughed at fond memories and tales and even I suspect shed a few tears.” “Amazing, from beginning to end. Such a great piece of story telling, great mix of young and old.”

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)


Audience came both from the village and surrounding area and from as far as Tenbury and Hereford to see this locally made documentary. Thoroughly enjoyed, even though this is not primarily a hop-growing area. 2 members of Catcher Media came along to introduce and to answer questions afterwards. Comments: Wonderful; thank you for a little bit of nostalgia.

Well worth showing. Considerable local interest. Very well made.
