“A triumph. The film is such a professional piece of work and beautifully crafted and edited with some lovely devices and transitions to punctuate the stories.  Warm, funny and with wonderful characters and also an important record of an important part of Hereford history.”

Hereford’s old livestock market is the stimulus for an exciting heritage project which brings people together from all over the county to share memories, gain skills, make a film  and create a children’s exhibition which celebrates our shared agricultural history.
