Ledbury is a Herefordshire market town, sitting east of Hereford, and west of the Malvern Hills. According to the 2011 Census, the town has a permanent population of 9290. Ledbury has an income from tourism, being steeped in history in an attractive rural region. It has a substantial number of timber-framed structures, particularly along Church Lane and High Street. Among the most exceptional is the Market House, constructed in 1617, located in the town centre. Other noteworthy structures consist of the parish church of St. Michael and All Angels, the Painted Room, featuring sixteenth-century frescoes, the Old Grammar School, the Barrett-Browning memorial clock tower, developed by Brightwen Binyon and opened in 1896 to house the library until 2015, close by Eastnor Castle, and the St. Katherine's Hospital site. Founded around 1231, this is a rare enduring example of a hospital complex, with hall, chapel, a Master's House, which was totally renovated and opened in March 2015 to house the Library, almshouses and a timber-framed barn. The town is the venue for several events including the Poetry Festival. The Market Theatre, reputed to be the first on the planet to open in the new millennium, is located near the town centre. They show movies regularly and play host to small and mid-scale specialist touring shows, featuring some performances in the Poetry Festival. The yearly Community Day occurs in June each year. The very first such occasion was an Ox Roast on 2 June 2013 to salute the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation, precisely 60 years after an ox roast that was hosted in 1953 in Ledbury on Coronation Day.
