What's On

Slow Food Ludlow Marches plans events throughout the year and we aim for a variety of activities which we hope will appeal to our Members and supporters.

These include visits, talks, demonstrations, meals and, of course, our Taste Workshops at Ludlow Food Festival in September.

If you haven’t been before, why not come along and see what they’re all about – we’re a friendly bunch and always enjoy welcoming new people. Equally we’d love to hear from you if you would like to help or even suggest some ideas – slowludlow@gmail.com

And don’t forget, being a Member means you will be the first to hear about our latest events and will give you access to Members Only events – or if you’d just like to be kept in the loop, why not join our Mailing List?


FOOD FOR CHANGE - Slow Food Taste Workshops at Ludlow Food Festival 2019

A Slow Food Taste Workshop offers you the opportunity to taste a succession of different examples of a particular food or drink guided by the people who produce it and the chefs who cook with it. This year the workshops have a common theme of sustainability

In recognition of the Climate Emergency, Slow Food International is spearheading a campaign called Food For Change to shift food production and consumption towards a sustainable model. We as consumers can help lower carbon emissions and promote biodiversity by:

Eating less, but higher quality, meat including from rare breeds;

Buying from small-scale farmers with high environmental standards;

Cooking less popular types and cuts of meat and accepting “wonky” carrots and other vegetables;

Using more seasonal, local and organic products.

Our Taste Workshops at Ludlow Food Festival this year are examples of how following these guidelines can enhance your gastronomic enjoyment.

Each workshop lasts about an hour and takes place in Ludlow Castle’s Beacon Room, which you enter via the garden area of the Ludlow Food Festival within the castle. Please note that entry on Friday evening (only) is by the external door to the Beacon Room to the right of the Castle entrance.
