Golden Fire


Arts & Heritage

Funded by Heritage Lottery, Golden Fire is a participatory digital arts project that explored the story of Herefordshire cider from 1945. Nominated for the Royal Television Society's Digital Innovation Award, Golden Fire developed the traditional arts heritage model into a digital app that acts as both a mobile exhibition and a map-based guide to the county's cider producers. You can download the app from Googleplay and the iTunes app store: 

Cider production is the beating heart of Herefordshire and recent years has seen the county’s pulse race as interest in cider, and craft cider in particular, has surged. But cider’s role in Herefordshire’s economy, culture and way of life goes deep into the past and Rural Media, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, brought together an exciting digital arts project all about the county’s cider heritage from 1945 to the present.

A DVD and booklet from the project is also available: call 01432 344039 or email to order your copy for £11.00, including postage & packing.
