There's plenty to get up to in Ledbury on this St Patrick's Day week.

Foraging Courses at Eastnor Castle

First on the agenda are the Foraging Courses at Eastnor Castle, set on the vast 300 acre park packed with wild plants and mushrooms on Saturday (March 16).

The course begins with a useful introduction to foraging and a brief about the Countryside Act.

The day ends with a wild food lunch from the finds of the day.

BookTrust Storytime

On Thursday (March 14), BookTrust Storytime promises an enjoyable session packed with stories and lively activities suitable for under five's at Ledbury Library.

Some of the Storytime Prize shortlisted stories will be on the agenda, with the weekly event also providing parents the chance to join the Squirrel Club to pick up a collector card.

Children will also get the chance to collect Booktrust stickers each week to put in their special activity book.

Starting at 11am, the session is free of charge.

St Patrick’s Celebration at The Talbot Hotel

Enjoy a late afternoon of jigging at The Talbot Hotel to celebrate St Patrick's Day on Sunday (March 17) with the Helix Gold Band.

From 5.30pm to 8pm, the allegedly haunted venue invites revellers to end the weekend with a drink and a few singalong songs.

St Patrick's Day at The Oak Inn Staplow

There's even more live music on offer this St Patrick's Day, when Banjaxxed perform at 6.30pm at The Oak Inn Staplow.

The band will bring some foot-tapping Irish folk tunes to the special day.

Alongside the music, attendees can look forward to some special Irish themed dishes added specially to the pub's traditional grub menu.

It's an opportunity to get into the festive spirit, and no doubt sink a few pints of Guinness.
