Ludlow Spring Festival is the sister event of the Food Festival organised by the same team with a similar vibe, but takes place in May so gets the festival season off to a great start. Like the Food Festival, the event takes place in the dramatic setting of Ludlow Castle. The SIBA (Society of Independent Brewers) tent has over 200 real ales form around the county and beyond. Most of the local brewers are present, including Hobsons and Ludlow Brewery, and a host of food stalls will ensure you won’t go hungry. There is live music in the marquee as well as talks and activities for kids. The Ludlow Spring Festival also combines the Marches Transport Festival when the castle courtyard is host to a variety of classic cars, vans, tractors and bikes.
