Featured project

Herefordshire Life Through A Lens: Inspired by the incredible archive of local photographer Derek Evans, the project will result in films, exhibitions and education packs which will tour the county and beyond.

First film of the project "Stories From The Hop Yards" has had sell-out screenings in Hereford, Ledbury, Bromyard, Ludlow and Malvern alongside lots of rural screenings. 

And now comes "Carousel" premiering at Borderlines Film Festival on 11th March then touring the County.

This feature length documentary delves deep into the Derek Evans photographic archive from the 1950s-1970s to bring you the stories behind his photographs of the county, from the May Fair to Hereford United, from the Fownhope Heart of Oak walk to jazz, from childhood to politics and much more.
