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. 

The film-makers will introduce the screening
