Hosting over 200 real ales, 60 local food and drink producers, live music, 180 classic cars and free talks and demos all inside the stunning grounds of Ludlow Castle, this really is a festival with a difference. There is something for the whole family and more besides with Pate and Pudding Trails around the town, more stalls on the market place outside the castle and tours around Ludlow Brewery, there is more than enough to tempt your taste buds. For true real ale fans why not come along to the 'Meet the Brewer' event on the Friday evening and take the opportunity of 'first tastes' of the many beers on offer whilst listening to live music - this is probably the time to mention that once the beer has gone, it's gone!!

For a taster of next years event on the 9th & 10th May take a look at this video for a snapshot.
A mouth-watering walk for all the family; taking in around 8 miles of stunning countryside located around Ludlow, walking a couple of miles and then stopping, often in the place your food is produced, to enjoy a delicious course of your 5-course meal which is all washed down with a carefully selected beer, perry, cider or liqueur whilst listening to live music in the great outdoors - the perfect picnic!!
Places are limited to 600 and tickets sell fast, so please let us know if you're interested in taking part by contacting us.
