Ludlow Food Festival playing with fire

Ludlow Food Festival celebrates its 30th anniversary this September.  This vibrant three-day celebration highlights the Marches region’s rich heritage of great food and drink, from quality growers and producers.

This year the event will be welcoming TV presenter and writer Kate Humble, whose ‘Escape to the Farm’ returned to Channel 5 last month with its third series.

She says:I’m delighted to be taking part in the Ludlow Food Festival this year, and celebrating 30 delicious years of championing the best independent producers, retailers and cooks.” 

Festival operations lead Jess Parker adds: “We are really looking forward to the 30th edition of Ludlow Food Festival. We’ve got exciting aspects returning and new ones in the pipeline ready and waiting to be announced. It’s going to be one big celebration of food and drink!” 

 For this special year the Festival plays host to the British Fire Cooking Championships in association with Kadai Firebowls and Love Logs. The fiery, live competition is running across the three days, and sees contestants battling it out in a series of themed cooking challenges on stage. It culminates with the final two contestants going head-to-head for place in prestigious World Fire Food Championships in Indianapolis and a range of fire cooking accessories. 

Visitors will be able to watch a dynamic and varied range of live cookery demonstrations, talks and tastings across three stages from a range of top chefs, writers and producers. Each stage has its own unique atmosphere, from the intimate ‘Talks and Tastings’ in Ludlow Castle Gardens, to the demo kitchen of the Outer Bailey Demonstration Stage, and the immersive Fire Stage, bringing fun, fire and flavour to the Inner Bailey. 

The festival  takes place from September 13 to 15.
