Hexham Cinema Screening of The Last Keeper

7th June 2024

Over the past two years, GWCT Scotland has assisted a US-based film maker, Shepherds of Wildlife, in the creation of a feature-length documentary, the ‘Last Keeper’.

This film captures the complexities of rural land use to meet the expectations of society today, and ensures that all sides of the debate are fully represented.

The film’s narrative portrays with great empathy the fragile wildlife and rural communities that are often caught in the crossfire.

There will be a screening of this film in the historic Forum Cinema in Hexham on the evening of  Thursday 13th June. Tickets are £10 and any profit made from the event will be split between Shepherds of Wildlife and GWCT. Not to be missed!
