Synopsis

This documentary film has been a sell out all over the region.


“Real people with rich memories beautifully portrayed”


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. 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. Listen to stories of days past and come right up to the present with pickers, farmers, traders and brewers.
