Welcome to Ludlow 21



March 2020 – Ludlow Green Festival

Dear Ludlow 21 Members and Supporters,

It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to cancel the Ludlow Green Festival, due to take place on the 12th July. The announcement follows the Prime Minister’s decision to restrict all movement outside the home to combat the current Coronavirus crisis. Whilst we hope that restrictions on movement will ease up by July, it is clear we will not have the resources available to organise an event this size during the current crisis.

The festival, which features many free and engaging activities for locals and visitors, has been running for 16 years. Completely managed by volunteers, it is the largest free community driven green festival we’re aware of in the area. Ludlow 21 is determined it will be back, better than ever next year for a Ludlow Green Festival 21 !

Thanks again for all your help, we wish you all to stay healthy and safe.

Regards Tish Dockerty

Chair Ludlow 21
