China on the horizon

Karen travels to China with The Closer We Get in November to screen in iDocs and speak at the Beijing Film Academy, and we just heard we have been awarded support from the British Council!

House of Ferment autumn tour!

The House of Ferment has a few exciting engagements coming up!

The Abbey Gardens Harvest Festival on Saturday 17 September I'll be doing a pickle / preserving demo from 3pm (sadly without the HoF pop-up larder!)

On the weekend of 24 & 25 September 2016 the full HoF roadshow (including the beautiful pop-up larder by Front, and special Mistress of the Fermented Drinks Francesca Ulivi) comes to the Harris Museum in Preston for two days of free, drop-in events with Grizedale Arts.

The Closer We Get - out on DVD & VOD

A wee fanfare to announce that our fourth feature film can now be ordered online on DVD & VOD:

Not only do you get the film (w/ optional English sub-titles) but there is also a wonderful bunch of Extra Scenes to enjoy.

Oh, and Somewhere is distributing the film ourselves with no middle man or woman - so you can feel good that your purchase goes directly to helping us keep doing what we do!

Save the Dates Oct 22 & 29: What's the Future for the Past?

We're delighted to be part of Cambridge's 2016 Festival of Ideas, with a clutch of rather wonderful free events:

Digging the Future (Tomorrow, Today) on Saturday 22nd Oct (a chance to learn archaeology by digging part of our installation at NW Cambridge)

Time Changes (Almost) Everything on Saturday 29th Oct (bring along a possession to have experts tell you how to conserve it, if it's possible to!)

What's the Future for the Past? on Saturday 29th Oct (pop-up exhibition of Prospection plus panel discussion on the future of heritage)

Booking for all of the above starts on Sept. 26 - follow the links above......
