Writing poetry, exploring hidden locations around the Malvern Hills and eating delicious food..what could be finer?

That is the question being asked by the Ledbury Poetry Festival, which has organised an event with those ingredients.

The festival's artistic director, Chloe Garner said: "Organised by Ledbury Poetry Festival and Malvern Hills AONB, join Jean Atkin, our Troubadour of the Hills, for a poetry workshop at Barton Court, Colwall, a Georgian gem of a country house tucked under the hills.

"After a tour of the grounds, outbuildings and the house itself, Jean will guide you into writing poetry about place."

Chloe added: "After lunch, we’ll take you to find another glory of the less-visited Malverns – the extraordinary Cloud Hedge at Old Colwall House.

"Plus there will be a further writing workshop before the end of the day."
