Ledbury Fringe runs alongside the Ledbury Poetry festival from July 4 until July 14, with the aim of “bringing together live music, buskers, comedy, dance and even some poetry and storytelling”.

The different events take place around the town of Ledbury and most of the events are free to enjoy.

It kicks off with the arrival of the Ledbury Food Group’s first ever Evening Farmer’s Market at The Barn in St Katherine’s car park on July 4, and that evening, the Fringe music starts with the ‘Eclectic Acoustic’ sound of Mumbo-Jumbo at The Prince of Wales.

A spokesman said: “Over the next 11 days, there’s a full programme of events with something happening every day. You can enjoy performances of a wide range of music including gentle folk, blues, jazz and rock interspersed with fringe poetry and workshops.

“Even the range of venues is also eclectic, from the parish church to micro pubs and all that lies between. Then, around the beautiful market town of Ledbury there will be busking spots throughout the period, so if you fancy yourself as a performer of anything; music, comedy or poetry you can just turn up and showcase your work.

“The Ledbury Celebration on Sunday 14th July includes a full afternoon’s music from local performers. As the acts take a turn on the stage area in St Katherine’s car park next to The Barn, you’ll discover some poetry and may even find some dance performance as the acts change on the stage, or why not browse the different food and drink stalls?

The Fringe draws to a close, right back were it started at The Prince of Wales where Sue Fear will be performing songs from the 30s to the 50s and more with her trio, Life.
