Barrels of fun, feasting, live music & motors

After a two-year break, the Ludlow Spring Festival is returning and it promises to be a real corker, bringing together the very best in regional beer, food, music, plus gorgeous classic cars in the form of the Marches Transport Festival at Ludlow Castle.

It's a beer festival and so much more. You’ll find the usual breadth of quality and depth of quantity with over 150 glorious ales from more than 60 local brewers available to taste over the weekend. If beer is not your thing, there are ciders, perry, fruit flavoured liqueurs and local wines 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 chilled-out vibe 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 14th-15th May – and there’s also a special preview evening on Friday 13th May (5pm-9pm) when visitors can ‘Meet the Brewer’. It’s a unique opportunity to quiz brewers about their beers and sample the full selection.

Prizes from SIBA (the Society of Independent Brewers) are handed out on the Friday, and the award-winning favourites sell out quickly, so the Friday evening preview is not to be missed.

Tickets and more information can be found on the website:

See you there!

Friday 13th May - Meet the Brewer preview night - 5pm to 9pm
Saturday 14th May - 10am to 9pm
Sunday 15th May - 10am to 5pm
