Locally known as the "Town in the Marches", steeped in history and mentioned in the Domesday Book, an extremely inviting and architecturally interesting market town with many black and white timber framed buildings to be found in its narrow streets. The Priory is one of the oldest in the UK and houses the ducking stool used in the last recorded ducking in England for a Jenny Pipes in 1809.
A centre for local commerce and renowned for its plethora of antique shops, 27 in total, ranging from a five story Georgian house entirely devoted to antiques to vintage clothes in Broad Street and architectural and garden antiques on the edge of town.
Surrounded by apple orchards, Leominster, pronounced Lem'ster, is close to many award winning cider producers. The town centre was recently semi-pedestrianised, making browsing around the antique shops a real pleasure. On Fridays there is an open market in Corn Square.
With two venues in the town, the Lion Ballroom and The Playhouse, Leominster screened 8 different films in the 2011 Festival while nearby Eye hosted Paul Merton's favourite accompanist Neil Brand's show The Silent Pianist Speaks.
All films and events for Borderlines May Festival 2012 are now over.
