Amazing volunteers

Without the dozens of volunteers on duty each year we simply couldn't run our fabulous events.

Without the dozens of volunteers on duty each year we simply couldn't run our three events, the Ludlow Spring Festival, the Magnalonga and the Ludlow Food Festival.

Some of our volunteers have been with us since the start, but every year we need lots of new people to help with the festival.  So if you feel you have the time to get involved we would really appreciate it.
