The Rural Media Company is an award winning production, education and development charity that uses creative and digital arts as a catalyst for community engagement and social change.
The Frank Dale Collection is a huge quantity of unique cine film and is one of the most remarkably complete filmed pictures of rural life. In all there are 111 reels - 11 miles of film, filmed in the relatively short period of Five Years in the Fifties.
We are working with the North Herefordshire Archive Film Group to create a new film from the archive complete with new narrative and musical score to be played live. The film will premiere at the Hay Festival on May 27th at 8.30pm. For tickets call 01497 822 629.
The Life Loves to Change book is now available to buy.
The beautiful eighty four page hardback book contains Philip Well's 32 sonnets for Ledbury, complete with photographic portraits and a DVD of all 32 films with two performances of the poem; one by Philip and the other by members of the community.
The book also contains a new essay, 'Whose line is it anyway' by writer, researcher and consultant Francois Mattarasso.
