For two weeks each spring thousands of people in Herefordshire and Shropshire discover scores of choice films thanks to Borderlines Film Festival, perhaps the biggest, certainly the most distinctive rural film festival in Europe. In steel and glass arts centres, refurbished movie theatres, ornate assembly rooms, dozens of village halls and even the back room of a pub, projectors whirr, filmmakers talk about their films, people meet, drink and debate.
Now Borderlines in the Villages enhances the experience in twenty Herefordshire villages. Watch the films, come to the special events and get the insider’s low- down on the surroundings, where to eat (in an region famous for cider and beef that prides itself on locally sourced products), unusual places to stay and what to do.
Herefordshire, described by Michael Portillo in Great British Railway Journeys as "the very essence of England... deep, beautiful rich greens, rolling countryside. Fantastic!", possesses more footpaths than it does roads.
Find out everything that’s worth knowing about this very special, undiscovered corner of the English countryside.
