Curator's Picks

Land Into Art @ Kington

Conceived and curated by ​Rebecca Finney, the Land Into Art exhibition features 15 artists celebrating the rich landscape of Herefordshire and explores the diverse way this landscape can be creatively interpreted. 

Alongside the finished work you'll get to nose at sketchbooks and notes the artists made when creating their pieces.

Find it at the Made in the Marches gallery throughout September and into October.

Look out for the Hereford River Carnival's giant heads on September 4th and 5th
Hereford River Carnival 2020

Giant heads! An open top bus! Yes this year's River Carnival is, you guessed it, going online, but it still promises to be - much like the riverside event we sorely missed when it was cancelled earlier this year - brilliant and bonkers.

While the virtual festival will be running on Facebook Live and, we're most excited about the live element which takes the form of an open top bus travelling to neighbourhoods across Hereford. They're keeping the locations secret, but look out for the giant heads. Seriously. 

If you have access to the internet, there'll be online workshops and opportunities to share your stay-at-home carnival atmosphere too.


BFI Film Academy
The #BFI Live Webinar

The BFI Film Academy will soon start up again in Hereford and 16-19 year olds with something to say - could be on BLM, climate change, Covid 19, education - can find out what's involved at these intro webinars.

Hosted by filmmaker Dan Haworth Salter, attendees will find out how to apply, and  glean top film industry tips at the same time.

Webinars take place on September 10th, 17th and 24th at 6.30pm.


What's on in Herefordshire: Out of Nature art show
Out of Nature exhibition @ Pensons

Reconnection is the (well chosen) theme of this year's Out of Nature exhibition, which has moved to Pensons, near Bromyard, for 2020.

The sculpture and art exhibition runs until September 13 and raises money for Cartshed, the Herefordshire and Worcestershire based mental health charity.

Organisers said: "After the challenges and confinement of lockdown we believe, more than ever, in the importance of reconnecting with the natural beauty of landscape and art as a channel for finding solace and inspiration in an unpredictable world." 

Entry will be ticket only, booked in advance.

Herefordshire made youth films are being premiered this month
Live film premiere: The Followers

Short films made by young creatives during lockdown are getting the red carpet treatment this month.

Interface and The Followers, both entirely devised and produced by young people living in north Herefordshire over past few months, will be streamed live on Rural Media's YouTube channel in September.

To watch the shorts and be part of the discussion around the issues they raise, read more here and then your book a seat at the screenings.

Hellens garden has reopened
Open Gardens @ Hellens

Say hello to Autumn with a visit to Hellens in Much Marcle. These lovely outdoor spaces - meadows, gardens and woodlands - are open 10am-6pm every Wednesday and Sunday throughout September. / @hellensmanor


Hereford Cathedral
Poetry Trail @ Hereford Cathedral

Sneak a peak at Hereford Cathedral's new poetry trail, which is based in the newly renovated Cloisters.

"Using extracts from existing poems as a starting point, as you wander through our Cloisters, write your own pieces of poetry. While some poets have been inspired by the beauty of the settings, others have focused on the characters found living there, so you can go in any direction – from satire to lyric."

Social distancing measures are in place, and booking's essential.
