There is nothing I like better than eating and drinking so the Ludlow Marches Food and Drink Festival is quite possibly the ideal weekend away...but it's the last place to go if you're watching your waistline! Named England's Finest Market Town by Country Life Magazine some years ago, Ludlow has a long tradition of selling quality local foodstuffs from the regular market.
Whether food is a part of your working life or you just appreciate good food and drink this is the place for you.
Set in Ludlow, Shropshire and held between the 7th and 9th of September this year, the Ludlow Marches Food and Drink Festival celebrates everything that is great about eating and drinking.
The first festival was held in 1995 and has gone from strength to strength ever since.
The timing of the festival means you can usually count on great weather and Shropshire is home to some of the UK's loveliest countryside.
The festival's objective is to celebrate the quality and diversity of the independent food and drink producers in and around Ludlow and the Marches.
Industrially-produced products do not feature in the festival, this is all about real food and drink and you'll get the chance to buy and sample some of the best.
The festival is run by volunteers and therefore always has a great atmosphere. The people here love food and love what they do so you're guaranteed a smile from everyone.
For something a little different and to get the chance to indulge your passion for food and drink the Ludlow Marches festival is the ideal summer trip.
