The Ludlow Food Festival is now in its 21st year and has become the highlight of the many food events held in Shropshire, and is praised as one of the best Food Festivals in the UK.
This year the Ludlow Food Festival runs from Friday 9th September through Sunday 11th September at the main venue of Ludlow Castle.
The Festival objective is to celebrate the quality and diversity of the superb independent food and drink producers and suppliers across Shropshire, Ludlow and the Marches. This year the Festival hosts more than 180 local food and drink producers who are displaying their wares and offering samples – you can try local sausages and meats, a wide range of locally brewed real ales and even puddings.
There are also many food-related events including:
- the famous Ludlow Sausage trail
- the Ale trail
- the Gorilla trail
You can find more information about these trails at the Ludlow Food Festival Web site here.
The Festival also features a series of hands-on Masterclasses where you can try your hand at:
- making your own sushi
- preparing a Thai Green Curry
- Pork Pie making
Ludlow was described by Sir John Betjeman as “probably the loveliest town in England” and more recently has been called the gastronomic capital of Shropshire. Ludlow is 9 miles and 20 minutes by road from Folly View Let.
