ANOTHER royal visitor will travel to Hereford next month as Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, visits a Hereford-based media company.

Rural Media were singled out by Prince Edward as a regional rural hub for culture, creativity and digital expression, particularly for their work in creatively engaging isolated communities and young people.

Prince Edward, accompanied by Lady Darnley, Lord Lieutenant of Herefordshire, will visit the Rural Media office on West Street on November 25 for a tour of the studios.

He will also meet key project funders and commissioners who have made the inspirational work of Rural Media possible over the last 27 years.

Nic Millington, Rural Media CEO said: "We're thrilled to welcome His Royal Highness Prince Edward to our Rural Media offices and studios in Hereford.

"We've worked tirelessly over the years to produce creative film, media and digital art that strengthens communities, supports new talent and influences social change.

"We couldn't be more proud to be chosen by the Earl of Wessex as a creative cultural and heritage hub for the region.

"We look forward to showcasing current work and raising the profile of some of our local, regional and national projects; Big Wig, Herefordshire's a Great Place, BBC New Creatives, and Travellers' Times."
