Herefordshire Life Through a Lens | Dementia Friendly Screening.
DEMENTIA FRIENDLY SCREENING
The sound is a little bit quiet and the lights are only dimmed. From 1.30pm you will be able to sit around a table and have tea, coffee and cake before you watch the film at 2pm.
Inspired by the rediscovered Derek Evans photographic collection Stories from the Hop Yards 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. Families would arrive for a working holiday by train, cattle lorry or charabanc. Dinners were cooked over open fires and children picked hops into an old umbrella while their mothers worked at the cribs. Followed by a Q+A with the film-makers and guest interviewees “These photographs are like a time machine allowing us to touch the past, you can smell hear and feel each scene” Exhibition visitor
