Thousands attend Hops and Harvest Festival in Kent

Thousands of people have been attending the Hops and Harvest Festival in Kent. It's all taking place at the Museum of Kent Life near Maidstone and is a chance for the younger generation to learn about what was once the county's most important industry.

In Victorian times 250,000 people worked on the hops during the four to six week season. Archive pictures in this report are from 'Hop Pickers Holiday' courtesy of Heathwood Studios.
