One of the county’s main culinary events is back this May as Ludlow Spring Festival returns on the evening of Friday 10 May, running until 5pm the following Sunday. Known far and wide as a foodie haven, the market town is home to a wealth of independent retailers, cafes and restaurants, as well as pioneering food and drink producers. The birthplace of the UK’s longest established Food Festival (which turns 25 this September), Ludlow also hosts this sociable weekend, showcasing the creativity and talent that thrive in the Marches – with a focus on real ales, craft beer, cider, wines and spirits.
In addition to the pints and bites, live music will keep visitors entertained, and there’s also a display of classic vehicles and car, wine and jewellery valuations. The Festival’s Hannah Mackley says, “Anyone who shares a love of great food, drink, live entertainment and classic cars should definitely pay a visit to the Spring Festival in Ludlow Castle this May!”
