Sunday 10th July 2022 10am – 4pm Castle Square
The Ludlow Green Festival is bouncing back with a bumper programme of free family activities. Opportunities abound for hands on educational fun, in keeping with the theme of saving our ailing planet.
Organised by Ludlow 21 the local environmental group for the town, there will be an opportunity for making bug hotels, help diagnose the planet’s ailing symptoms with ‘Dr. Green’, how to ‘Make a Pollinator Happy?’, hands on ceramic tile pressing with wildflowers, as well as making an alternative ‘Prom Dress’ with pupils from Ludlow School.
Other activities include ‘Climate Question Time’ in partnership with South Shropshire Climate Action where Festival goers will be able to put their questions to a panel of experts, such as ‘ I want to be warm at home, what’s the best way nowadays?’ and the ‘Soap Box’ which will be free for short public speeches in between the extensive live music acts line up. We also welcome ‘Planet Medic’ an engaging piece of theatre that will take place throughout the day as well as bushcraft walks which leave at midday, 2pm and 3pm. All this as well as 40 stalls of local environmental groups and businesses all in the Ludlow market square.
All this activity will be washed down with excellent local beer thanks to Ludlow Brewery bar and delicious local food including Japanese, Argentinian and Indian cuisine, pancakes and ice cream, as well tea and cake provided by Ludlow Guides. Not forgetting the Wigley Field Allotments being open for members of the public to peruse and local Islabikes offering rides with electric bicycles.
So absolutely something for everyone and a great day out for the family, with free activities and entertainment throughout the day.
