Bromyard is the centre of the country's biggest hop-growing area. The Hop Festival is a unique day's celebration of heritage, including music old and new, a Parade of Horse-Drawn and Vintage vehicles, an old-tyme funfair, a chance to try out how it was to hand-pick hops in the past, archive films, a craft fair, stalls where you can buy hop-bines and locally-produced food - there's loads to see and do. The day includes the Hop Pocket World Championship race, in which teams of four run through the streets carrying a full hop sack weighing 70 kg. The Race is the only one of its kind in the world
Free of charge. Events all day from 10am. Parade of Horse-Drawn and Vintage vehicles at 1pm. Hop Pocket Race from 4pm. Full timetable in printed programme available on the day.
