Ludlow Carnival

The theme for this year’s Carnival Parade is “LOVE” (inspired by ‘Romeo & Juliet’ playing at Ludlow Castle).

The Carnival will be an inclusive day for all and is aimed at celebrating and promoting the town of Ludlow, its people, businesses, trades, schools, organisations and entire community. It will be a stand-alone, non-profit making event.

Prior to June 15, a series of FREE family and community workshops will be held at Ludlow Assembly Rooms to create props and displays to carry within the parade or hold and wave by spectators and to make window displays for the town. The shop window displays will be entered in to a ‘Love Ludlow’ window dressing competition and prizes will be awarded courtesy of Ludlow Chamber of Trade & Commerce. For details of the workshops, see Ludlow Assembly rooms website.

The parade will leave Ludlow Brewery at 4:00pm, led by a Salsa Band along Corve Street to King Street, High Street and Market Square and finally enter the Outer Bailey of Ludlow Castle, where participants can celebrate by hugging, cheering and dancing or just listening to the band until 5:00pm.

In addition to the salsa band, the parade will include players from Flabbergast (who will be presenting Romeo & Juliet in the evening at the Castle), along with belly dancers, peace & love hippies and the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite on horseback!
