The Ludlow Festival has been held annually since 1960, during the end of
June and the start of July each year. An open area within the castle serves as
the stage and backdrop for various Shakespearean plays, while a number of
supporting events at various venues include classical and pop/rock concerts,
varied musicians, lecture talks from public figures, and entertainers.
The Medieval Christmas Fayre is another
annual event in Ludlow taking place during late November, again centred on
Ludlow Castle and the market square
