Ludlow Spring Festival

Barrels of Fun, Feasting, Live Music and Motors

The Marches Transport Festival boasts stunning classic vehicles displayed IN the grounds of LUDLOW CASTLE over the weekend.

For the past 13 years we have had displays on both the Saturday and the Sunday due to the overwhelming demand from car owners to be part of this event.

On SUNDAY ONLY - Leominster to Ludlow Run

Departing from Broad Street car park, Leominster from 10:30am; leaving Leominster by the B4361 (back road) via Luston, Orleton and Richards Castle to the Overton Road, turn left to Ludford, over bridge, bearing right, at the top of the hill turn left through town centre to the castle.

See who's booked

We always welcome new entries into the event, so if you're pre-1985 and fancy a fantastic day out enjoying the stunning surrounds of Ludlow Castle then this really is the event for you. 

Regional food and drink producers, kids activities and of course the  'Festival Pub' which will host over 100 real ales & live music through Friday to Sunday - certainly an event not to be missed!

Ludlow Spring Festival and the Marches Transport Festival have come together under the organisation of Ludlow Food Festival who are a 'Not For Profit' organisation working to promote and support the independent food and drink culture and businesses across Ludlow and the Welsh Marches and contributing to both regional and local economy in an inclusive and sustainable manner.

We are always looking for people to join our committee or to come along and help stewarding over the weekend.  If you feel you would like to join our team please contact us either by email or phone.

Happy Motoring!
