Head over the drawbridge...


...into the Inner Bailey of the castle for hands-on activities aplenty and the Master Falconer’s stunning birds of prey.

Plus tall tales galore from The Yarnsmith of Norwich, St Nicholas himself, archery and a chance to try your hand at circus skills!

If you’ve ever fancied yourself as Robin Hood, see how steady your aim really is with our have-a-go archery and crossbow forest in the Inner Bailey! Or, if juggling and jesting is more your thing,
check in at one of our regular Circus Skill sessions led by Ludlow favourite and stiltwalker supreme Kris Katchit.

If you love a good story, don’t forget to visit captivating teller of tales, The Yarnsmith of Norwich as he spins his stories and weaves his words into yarns for all ages.

A firm favourite at the Fayre, our Master Falconer will share his passion for his beautiful birds of prey, demonstrate their flying skills and, for the ultimate selfie, will even let you hold one on your hand!

In the beautiful Round Chapel, keep an ear out for off-the-cuff concerts by some of the many musicians at the Fayre and don’t miss out on carol singing with festival favourites, The Quire.

For those with no fear of heights, head up the steep steps of the tall tower by the drawbridge for spectacular views over Ludlow town and the surrounding hills. And don’t forget to pop in to see St Nicholas in his Christmas den too!
