INSIDE LUDLOW CASTLE

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD
Not just beer, bread and bangers, you will find plenty of stalls featuring top quality food and drink from small producers up and down the Marches, the Welsh border country. Products that have been produced on a small scale by people who really care that their food and drink should taste good, and be produced with care for the environment. You won’t find big brands or supermarkets here! More about the ‘Festival Pub’ and List of Exhibitors.

BEER FESTIVAL – organised by SIBA (The Society of Indepedent Brewers Association) takes place inside the ‘Festival Pub’.  190+ different real ales on draught (bottles too) from independent breweries from Wales and the border counties. Each brewer’s entry will be part of the SIBA Wales & West Competition. More about the ‘Festival Pub’ List of Exhibitors here.
