Our Ultimate Festival Guide

Experience Ludlow Spring Festival

Here's where you'll find that all-important information about Dogs, Accessibility, Baby changing facilities, Shopping Crèche and Toilets.


Well-behaved dogs, on a lead, are allowed on the Ludlow Castle grounds, but not in any marquee, under marquee cover, or anywhere where food preparation is taking place (except guide dogs). Festival venues other than the Ludlow Spring Festival each have their own policy regarding dogs, but of course, food shops do not normally permit dogs to enter.


Wheelchair and mobility scooters access
Ludlow Castle is a medieval outdoor ruin and there will be some areas of the Castle that are inaccessible to wheelchairs, pushchairs, or for people with mobility issues. For more information on accessibility at the Festival visit Ludlow Castle's website or call the Festival's office where we can provide further information.

Most other venues in Ludlow are suitable for wheelchair and mobility scooters access. Some shops have entrance steps but assistance is readily available.

Wheelchair hire - we do have a limited number of light-use wheelchairs that can be hired at the weekend with a £30 deposit left until their return.

Disabled toilets can be found at the Ludlow Spring Festival venue (Ludlow Castle) and also in town, just off the Castle Square.

Blue Badge Parking

As well as local on-street Blue Badge parking, there will be dedicated Festival Blue Badge parking available at:

Ludlow Rugby Club
The Linney, Ludlow, SY8 1EE
Parking open Friday, Saturday & Sunday
£5 in cash only - all proceeds going to this community club

If you have additional needs and require assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to do what we can to help.

Baby Changing & Feeding Facilities

There are baby changing and feeding facilities available within the festival; these are based within small marquees and contain a table and chairs for your use. There are also a couple of changing mats and a small amount of disposable wipes and nappy bags available for your use, if needed, along with sanitizing gel.

Shopping Crèche

Shop ‘n Drop… Why not leave your purchases at the Festival's charity-run shopping crèche (located at the entrance/exit of the Festival) and pick them up later!


Toilets + Disabled toilet facilities can be found during the Spring Festival at Ludlow Castle, and in the car park off Castle Square.
