Get Involved

Join Slow Food in the UK and you automatically also become a member of Slow Food Ludlow Marches, as your local group.

A great way to keep in touch with all Slow Food related matters and what your local group is doing to help local people and businesses through this emergency situation. We hope to resume our range of events and activities as soon as things improve.

Currently we have joined forces with Pulling Together Ludlow to get supplies and people connected as quickly as possible and where most needed. See our What’s On page for more details. If you would like to discuss ways in which you can help email us at, or just join our mailing list.
