Landscape charity Friends of the Lake District has commissioned a short film to celebrate its 85th year (1934 – 2019) which will be screened at the Rheged Centre, Penrith later this month.

Produced and directed by Terry Abraham – Producer of the Life of a Mountain film trilogy – it delivers its message through the poetry of Harriet Fraser and Terry’s spectacular Lake District footage to explore the vital connection between people and place; the glorious landscape and the rich cultural heritage of Cumbria and the Lake District.

Douglas Chalmers, Chief Executive, Friends of the Lake District said: “In Our Hands” is a highly visual celebration of the vital connections between people and place.

“It is a beautifully illustrated, thought-provoking work, forward looking to the future for our children and recognises that Friends of the Lake District will always have, on behalf of this much-loved landscape, the dedication to keep asking, are we on the right road?”

The evening will begin with a series of talks and reflections:

  • Douglas Chalmers, Chief Executive, Friends of the Lake District – a celebration of 85 years of landscape protection and a view to the future.
  • Harriet Fraser, Writer, Poet and Author – the creative process behind the evolution and conception of the poem “In Our Hands”.
  • Terry Abraham, Award-winning Film maker and Photographer, Producer and Director – how the words of the poem were brought to life through the medium of film and reflections on his final film in the Life of a Mountain Trilogy – Helvellyn – due for release in May 2020. (A short trailer will be premiered).

Talks and film screening will take place on Friday 25th October from 7:30pm at the Rheged Centre. Tickets are available from the Rheged box office online at: or by calling 01768 868000. Adults £10, Concessions £8
