After an absence of two years due to COVID-19, Ledbury Carnival is returning with a traditional Street Carnival on August Bank Holiday Monday, 29th August.

The theme for 2022 is 'LEDBURY BLOOMS' to reflect how Ledbury and District have emerged from Covid with a special emphasis on Sustainability and the Environment.

The festivities begin in the lead up to the event with shops displaying brightly coloured window displays to be judged on Friday 26th August and winner announced on the 27th. The winner will receive a silver trophy presented by the Carnival Princess and her Attendants.

Carnival Day itself begins with a parade of brightly coloured Floats and individuals in Fancy Dress wending its way from the Rugby Club on Ross Road into the High Street via New St.

It is hoped 2022 will feature an increase in the number of Floats, accompanied by a vintage steam roller, making this year's parade the best ever. 

A small viewing area will be available for visitors using motorised scooters and wheelchairs to enjoy the spectacle. We would ask this area be respected by our visitors to enable all to enjoy the day.

The town centre will be the hub of activities featuring live music from one of Ledbury's best loved groups, FRONTRUNNER, supported by a new local group, BAND for LIFE, combined with the ever-popular Looby Lou, face painting under the Market House, and Joey the Juggler mingling in the crowd stopping to do balloon modelling keeping the youngsters amused.

A variety of Food Stalls ranging from Ledbury favourites LDA Meats with their delicious Pork Rolls to an Ice Cream Van from a Hereford supplier, will offer an assortment of options for visitors. 

A second 'quieter area' in Bye St Car Park, will be running alongside the hub-bub of the town centre with another local duo, Carol Lee Thomson & Don McCleod, alternating with a popular Childrens Disco. It is hoped this area will provide respite for those who find the crowded and noisy main streets a daunting place, or just wish to have a quiet chat with friends.

The organising committee hope this years event will prove to be one of the most colourful and enjoyable event in years.
