Full details of the 2022 Ledbury Big Soup now available  

Join us for Ledbury’s Celebration of Soup over the weekend of Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November.

Sixteen local food venues in and around Ledbury are taking part on one or more days in this event organised by Ledbury Food Group to celebrate soup.

The event takes place at cafes, pubs, hotels, butchers and food shops in and around Ledbury.

There is lots of choice showing the ingenuity of our local food venues – check through the listing below for something to sample, savour and enjoy, whether you eat in, take away or take home. 

Our independent food shops have a wide range of local produce to take home to make your own special soup.

We celebrate the recently launched Herefordshire Food Charter which encourages us to eat good, locally produced food like soup as part of a sustainable diet.

Please remember too our local Ledbury Food Bank which is supporting local people in crisis in our community.  Find out how you can help at https://ledburyfoodbank.org/index.html#help

On Sunday the Ledbury Christmas lights event will be on all afternoon with a food and craft market, musical entertainment and Father Christmas.  The lights will be switched on at 5pm.  Check below for cafes serving their special soups on Sunday.
