Ludlow Piano Festival

May 2023 will see the first Ludlow Piano Festival – four full days of piano concerts and events at three venues in the beautiful and historic town of Ludlow in Shropshire.

The event is the brainchild of Joint Artistic Director and Chair, Alistair McGowan, who said, Ludlow has three perfect venues with excellent pianos all within 100 metres of each other. So, we hope that people will come from near and far to see and hear as many of our three-events-a-day for as many days as possible.

The festival will begin with a celebrity concert – hosted by Robert (‘Judge’) Rinder – featuring actors, presenters and comedians each playing a solo piece (or two) on the wonderful Steinway in the cathedral-like St Laurence’s Church.  It is a chance to see Ed Balls, Jo Brand & Wynne Evans (Mr Go Compare)* as you’ve never seen them before!

The festival will also feature discussions (hosted by BBC Proms presenter, Katie Derham and BBC Radio 3’s Ian Skelly) and masterclasses (for invited students and for brave amateurs) with our professional recital pianists.
