Ludlow Spring Festival is back for 2023 and it promises to be a real corker – with a new venue, we’re bringing together the very best in regional beer, food, music, plus gorgeous classic cars in the form of the Marches Transport Festival. In 2023, the Spring Festival will take place at its new home, Ludlow Rugby Club – the move is a chance to grow the event, develop ideas and work with the Rugby Club who offer a fantastic community resource.
Ludlow Spring Festival is a beer festival and so much more. You’ll find the usual breadth of quality and depth of quantity with glorious ales from award-winning local brewers available to taste over the weekend. If beer is not your thing, there are ciders, liqueurs, local wines, and alcohol-free options to enjoy too.
A range of artisan food producers will be on hand, providing the opportunity to stock up on your favourite products ahead of the Ludlow Food Festival in September. The Festival allows time to talk to producers, hear their stories and learn why they make what they make.
As always, there will be plenty of great music – from jazz and blues to Latin and folk. And the Marches Transport Festival gives you a feast for the eyes with its classic cars show featuring pre-war gems right through to modern day classics of the 70s and 80s.
This year’s Ludlow Spring Festival runs 12th-14th May – regular visitors will notice we’ve grown the event this year and will be open on the Friday daytime too. Friday and Saturday will have the Real Ale SIBA bar, while Sunday will have more of a family focus.
Don’t forget there’s also the main Food Festival to look forward to in September (8-10 September 2023). Held in Ludlow Castle, it really is the place to be for those serious about food. As ever, there will be free chef demonstrations and talks to enjoy alongside kids’ activities and trails around the town. Join us in the Castle after dark on the Friday evening when our Live Fire stage will come to life with DJ’s and street food – an evening not to be missed for locals and visitors alike.
