Eat, Drink and be Merry!


Join us to celebrate the start of the Christmas season in the stunning Medieval setting of Ludlow Castle.

 

Over the weekend of 25th & 26th November, explore over 100 stalls selling seasonal wares, food and drink, crafts, historical goods and more; it’s the ideal chance to find the perfect, original gift or indulge in a unique treat.

With a wide range of food and drink stalls to tickle your taste buds, grab a mulled wine, a spiced cider or head over to our local Beer Tent to whet your appetite for our full programme of entertainment.

From live music, theatre, comedy, juggling and swashbuckling sword fights, there’s entertainment throughout the castle all weekend.
