Sixty years ago, on the 2nd June 1953, Ledbury celebrated the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by holding an Ox Roast in Ledbury High Street, close to the Market House. Sixty years later, on 2nd June 2013, an Ox Roast will again be held in Ledbury, coupled with a Food and Drink Festival and entertainment.
Norman Stanier, Chairman of the Ledbury Ox Roast Committee, will explain the history and introduce a film showing the original event at Putley WI on Wednesday 13 February at 7.45pm, in Putley Parish Hall. Everyone is invited to come and hear his talk, and to see the wonderful archive footage of the original event. admission is free and refreshments (in true WI style!) will be available.
