Our butchers – Gurneys and Wallers – will feature special breakfast items to celebrate the Ledbury Big Breakfast for you to take away and enjoy, and our delis will feature a range of local produce to taste and take home to make a special breakfast.

Ledbury Refugee Support are holding a special Middle Eastern breakfast at the Organic Café (above Handley Organics) on the Saturday to raise funds.

For a rural breakfast, visit those taking part outside Ledbury Town.
