There is a restricted number of spaces available for each day due to the physical constraints within the grounds of Ludlow Castle.
Applications can be made to display for either day or just one day if preferred. (Display spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis.)
Vehicles may be left on site overnight. We have night security on duty (and the Castle is locked!) but the vehicles remain parked at the owner's own risk.
Vehicles displaying on Sunday will be judged and the presentations will be made on Sunday afternoon. (Please see Booking Information for all the Entry Categories.)
All members of the public will receive a FREE Ludlow Spring Festival program on the day – listing all cars that have been entered before 1st March.
Due to the lack of program space each entrant is asked to bring along a history of their vehicle to place in the windscreen of their vehicle.
