We invite your group to join us in the 10th Ledbury Community Day taking place on

Saturday 8th June 2024

Ledbury Community day at the Community CentreThe aim of Ledbury Community Day is to provide an opportunity for local groups to show what they do and encourage participation from locals and visitors – a celebration of Ledbury and District’s excellence.  We have booked space in St Katherine’s Hall, The Burgage Hall and The Community Centre but you may already have your own space available in the town centre.

In 2023 nearly 60 groups and organisations took part representing all ages and all parts of the community.   The halls were busy and a number of groups held successful events on their own premises.  Here’s some feedback from past years – “Another thoroughly enjoyable and successful day at (our) stand”, “(we) did well from having a presence at Community Day”, “We spoke to lots of people about our work, and had promises of future donations”, “I wanted to thank you very much for all the effort that went into this Community Day. It was a wonderful outreach project”.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can my group join in?

We would like your group to show to other residents in Ledbury and District and to visitors the things you do and the part you play in local life.

You are free to do this in any way that will show off your group and introduce it to others.  Please be creative.

Consider how to involve others e.g. by inviting people to take a part in your activities on the day to discover more about you.   It’s all about joining in.

You may choose to work with other Ledbury groups to make a bigger impact.  We are asking all groups serving Ledbury and District to take part.

Think whether you can pick up this year on the themes of The Great Big Green Week – see details at https://greatbiggreenweek.com/.



Where is Ledbury Community Day taking place?

We want groups to be doing their thing all over Ledbury.  You can choose to hold your event at the premises you normally use, or you can share with other groups.

We have booked space at the Burgage Hall, the Community Centre, and St. Katherine’s Hall. Other places including the Walled Garden and the Recreation Ground are also possible, subject to permission.   We are seeking permission to use the ground floor of the Market House for the Community Band, Community Choir and possibly other musical performance.

Subject to demand we may be able to site groups outside St Katherine’s under gazebos provided by Ledbury Town Council.

How will people know about Ledbury Community Day?

We publicise the event in advance in the press, through social media and by local hand-outs and signage – you can help us by spreading the word – it’s an event for everyone in Ledbury and District.  Full details of what you are doing, where and when will go on our website.  On the day, we will also have a handout, listing those taking part and where to find them, and stewards to help people.

When in the day should my group’s event take place?

It’s your choice when on Saturday 10th June to hold the event if running on your premises – it will be June so there will be plenty of daylight.   We want things to be happening all through the day, so that everyone can experience many different things.  Remember that we want you to visit other groups as well!

The public halls will open to the public from 10am to 2pm – from past experience this is when most want to visit the event.  Please plan to stay to 2pm.

How can we benefit from taking part?

It’s your day – you can use it to recruit more members or volunteers, you can use it to raise funds for your group or a favourite charity, or you can use it just to show off what you do and have fun doing it, celebrating Ledbury’s excellence.
