Discover Shropshire & The Marches This Summer

19th June 2017

There is lots going on around us at the School House B&B in Shropshire over the summer.  Is it time you discovered Shropshire and some of these events?

The Ludlow Fringe Festival with music, dance, street theatre and performing arts runs from Saturday 17th June – Sunday 2nd July. http://www.ludlowfringe.co.uk/

Church Stretton has its walking festival running from Thursday 22nd June - Sunday 25th June with 20 walks on offer. There are a variety of themed walks such as a geology walk, a wildlife walk, a 9 mile pub walk, a landscape photography walk or the Mynd Drover, a challenging walk of 13, 18 or 26 miles with up to 4600ft of ascent.  http://www.churchstrettonwalkingfestival.co.uk/walks.php

At the end of the month, 24th – 25th June the Shrewsbury Food Festival takes place with over 200 exhibitors in the Quarry Park and around the town. http://www.shrewsburyfoodfestival.co.uk/

Just heading into next month an event to get a few people going on the 1st July is the Madness tribute band One Step Behind who are playing at Ludlow FC.  https://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/Shrewsbury/Ludlow-Town-Football-Club/Open-Air-Summer-Of-Madness/12979352/ .

The Shobdon Food & Flying Festival takes place at Shobdon Airfield on the weekend of 1st – 2nd July. As well as food and flying the entertainment includes live music, and arts & crafts. This is a growing festival that only invites the best local producers to exhibit. http://www.shobdonfoodandflyingfestival.co.uk/

On Sunday 23rd July a day for dog lovers is the Ludlow Dog Day held in the grounds of Stokesay Court which is very close to us. http://www.ludlowdogday.org.uk/

On Friday11th – Saturday 12th August is the popular Shrewsbury Flower Show which has celebs such as gardener Joe Swift and chef John Torode in attendance.  https://shrewsburyflowershow.org.uk/ .

The following day, Sunday 13th August, sees the Ludlow Mangalonga which is described as “a leisurely countryside walk of between 8 – 10 miles with local food and drink stops”. It is organised by the same group that organise the Ludlow Spring Festival and Ludlow Food Festival. This event is ticket only & will sell out so be quick. http://www.magnalonga.co.uk/

Whilst we are fully booked on the Friday & Saturday for Ludlow’s premier event, the Ludlow Food Festival on the weekend of 8th – 10th September we do have vacancies on the Sunday evening. http://www.ludlowfoodfestival.co.uk/

If you need somewhere to stay whilst attending any of the events do get in touch with us at The School House B&B. If none of these events take your fancy there will still be plenty of space in Shropshire to do your own thing. We are one of the least densely populated counties in England.
