Ludlow Town Council celebrates the success of Ludlow Winter Festival

Ludlow Town Council are delighted to be part of the overwhelming success of the Ludlow Winter Festival, which took place over the weekend, drawing hundreds of attendees.

The Orleton Young Farmers Tractor Run kicked off the weekend, setting the tone for a series of festive events. Events included folk music in Ludlow Assembly Rooms, a light trail in Ludlow Castle, pizza and poetry in St Laurence’s Church and lots more.   

One of the festival's highlights was the eagerly awaited Light switch-on, where Ludlow’s Mayoress, Gabriella Ginger had the honour of illuminating the town and initiating the festivities.

Mayor of Ludlow, Councillor Glenn Ginger said; “Ludlow Town Council are delighted with the overwhelming turnout and positive feedback from attendees. The collaboration and support from the community has made this event a real success”.

The Ludlow Winter Festival not only highlighted the town’s vibrant independent scene with late-night shopping and Christmas markets but also provided a platform to showcase local talent. Performances included Macy O, Ludlow Male Voice Choir and Bella Acapella to name a few. The wide variety of free activities contributed to the festival’s inclusive and family-friendly atmosphere with a visit from Father Christmas, entertainment from Sunshine Radio and a commotion caused by The Grinch.

Ludlow Town Council extends its gratitude to all participants and businesses who played a crucial role in making Ludlow Winter Festival a memorable event. The Council looks forward to building on this success in future events and continuing to bring the community together through collaboration with businesses and organisations.
