Every May, Ludlow Festival’s offspring – Ludlow Spring Festival – pitches its marquees, readies its producers and has its brewers champing at the bit to share their knowledge and over 190 real ales in the Festival Pub. Proving that our age-old traditions of brewing, baking and sausage-making are not only alive and well, but positively thriving in 21st-Century Britain, the Spring Festival has a clear and delicious focus.

As well as those real ales, there will be food from 60 local producers, selling the best of British, including plenty of sausages! There’s live music, 200 classic cars and free talks and demos, all inside the grounds of Ludlow Castle. In classic Ludlow tradition, the food trails – of paté and pudding – around the town are great fun for the whole family. Tours of Ludlow Brewery, the opportunity to ‘Meet the Brewer’ on Friday evening and taste the beers on offer, whilst listening to live music, is enough to keep any ale enthusiast fully occupied and indisputably happy.

At the Spring Festival, browsing quickly turns to joining in, whether you’re five or fifty.  Children’s hands-on cookery classes let the little ones get satisfying messy and Masterclasses from Danny Silcock will teach you skills on how to make a tasty pork pie, creative canapés, traditional afternoon tea and delicious Shropshire brunch.  Talks and Demonstrations - we have a fabulous line-up on our Wot’s Cooking Stage over the weekend.

Proving that Ludlow doesn’t do things by halves, the Spring Festival is a celebration of all things British, packing a slightly different punch to its older counterpart.
