DOC045: Addicted to Sheep

  • The Park Tavern 158 Park Lane Macclesfield Cheshire (map)

Set in the North Pennines, Addicted to Sheep is an intimate portrait of a year in the life of tenant hill farmers Tom and Kay Hutchinson as they try to breed the perfect sheep.

Through the rain, shine, sleet and snow we see them toil away against the stunning landscapes of North East England and witness the hard work it takes just to survive. Their three children are growing up close to the land, attending a school entirely comprised of farmers’ children, thoroughly immersed in their remote rural world. While the odds often seem stacked against them, the film conveys the importance of a balanced family life and the good humour that binds this tight knit community together.

Certificate: PG.

Tickets, for which there is no charge, are available from the bar in the hour prior to the film. There will be an interval approximately half way through.
