Ledbury Celebrates on Sunday July 9

The Ledbury Celebration celebrates the local food and drink of Herefordshire and its neighbouring counties with an added menu of music, poetry and our historic heritage.

This year’s event brings an outdoor market with street-food to historic St Katherine’s, Ledbury next to the 15th century Master’s House, and just off the High Street.

Brought to you by Ledbury Food Group, Ledbury Poetry and Ledbury Town Council, the event runs from 11am to 4pm with entertainment from midday.

Local produce will be on sale either to eat and drink “on the go”, to take home to savour in slower time, or just to sample. 19 local producers will be there to tempt you – those attending can be found at www.ledburyfoodgroup.org.

Ledbury Poetry has lined up special “alfresco” poetry performances featuring poems from Ledbury’s Young Poets at12.45pm, local recently published Emma Clowsley with poems composed specially for the event at 1.45pm and straight talking Chloë Jacquet with a penchant for rhymes and opinions at 2.45pm. Beth Calverley, will be present with her magical Poetry Machine, your chance to experience poetry, created in response to your thoughts, feelings, ideas, and discoveries.

The musical menu features:

Four Crying Out Load – Ledbury’s own “Fishermens” quartet - at 12 noon.

George Montague – charismatic and talented singer and songwriter at 1pm.

The Hey Yahs Trio entertain with harmony vocals and acoustic covers at 2pm.

The Rohan cover Folk, Blue grass and contemporary in their unique way at 3pm.

Ledbury Border Morris will bring a magical end to the day with traditional local dance at 3.40pm

The event also welcomes Sustainable Ledbury – addressing food waste, and you can find out more about local food with Ledbury Food Group who are running a Raffle with proceeds to Ledbury Food Bank.

And you can visit Ledbury’s heritage sites, or book in for a session of poetry with Ledbury Poetry Festival on the last day of the festival.
