On Friday 10th May you’ll be able to enjoy a glass at the ‘Festival Pub’. It will be open from 5pm, so feel free to come on in and explore as many of our real ales as you can manage. Local beermasters will be on hand and they’ll be happy to answer your questions about their work.
Brewers from some of the biggest names in the region, including Hobsons, Corvedale, Brecon Brewery, Wye Valley, Ludlow Brewery and more will share the secrets behind your favourite tipple. You’ll not only be able to sample the huge selection of beers – you’ll also be able to find out when they were brewed, what ingredients went into them and why they developed their characteristic flavours.
Great music will be played throughout the Friday evening session, to make sure you’re entertained while you drink, it's worth noting at this point that when its gone, it's gone.
Friday evening's supping will be accompanied by great music from ASPARAGUS AND THE KILBURN HABIT, 7 - 9PM
Asparagus and the Kilburn Habit's - http://www.myspace.com/aandkh
a very fun and very entertaining street act a 50's style skiffle band. They parody modern songs and are best accompanied by a pint and good sense of humour, which will take us through to closing at 9pm, when we recommend you take yourself off into town to enjoy some of Ludlow's real ale pubs
With over 180 Real Ales from over 50 brewers from across the SIBA Wales and West region this is beer lovers paradise.
It’s not just food that we’re serious about. We’re also serious about charity. Supporting good causes is at the heart of what we do – and we’re planning a Secret Dinner Party to celebrate. The Ludlow Secret Dinner Party will take place on May 9 and September 12.
Talks and demonstrations will be run from the Inner Bailey stage throughout the weekend with many of them being 'hands-on'!
With the pate trail on the Saturday and the pudding trail on the Sunday this is a tasty opportunity to explore Ludlow.
