Stories from the Hop Yards - Upcoming Film Screening

Description: Inspired by the rediscovered Derek Evans' photographic collection

Stories from the Hop Yards brims with archive photos and films, alongside newly-recorded interviews. An essential ingredient of British beer, hops, with their evocative aroma, have been an integral part of Herefordshire life for centuries. During the hand-picking heyday, families arrived for a working holiday by train, cattle lorry or charabanc. Dinners were cooked over open fires and children picked hops into old upturned umbrellas, while their mothers worked at the cribs. Pickers, farmers, traders and brewers come together in this first film in the Herefordshire Life Through a Lens project to recount tales of hop-picking days, past and present, and with an eye to the future.
