ONE of the legends or rock music dropped into the Ludlow Assembly Rooms on a visit to the town.
There was much excitement in the Ludlow Assembly Rooms this week when Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant unexpectedly dropped in at the venue.
The singer, now based in Bewdley, previously played at the Assembly Rooms back in 1999 when he was touring with his folk-rock outfit Priory of Brion.
Having spent a few days enjoying the sights of Ludlow, he decided to revisit the performing arts centre to see how it had changed over the years.
Looking out from the stage in the main auditorium, he recalled performing to a sell-out crowd of 300 people in what was a very intimate gig for the seasoned stadium rocker.
He also spent some time enjoying the Assembly Rooms’ retrospective exhibition of the works of Graham and Ann Arnold, the internationally renowned artists who co-founded the Brotherhood of Ruralists.
“It’s a great venue with a lot of history,” Robert Plant said of the Assembly Rooms.
While Led Zeppelin are unlikely to perform in Ludlow any time soon, rock fans can enjoy the next best thing, Whole Lotta Led will perform on Saturday June 7.
The UK’s longest-running professional Led Zeppelin tribute band will be delving into the band’s back catalogue to perform the classics sounds.
