LUDLOW Town Council has begun compiling the 2018 Calendar of Events and is inviting local organisations and businesses to promote their local events for 2018.

The Ludlow Calendar of Event 2018 is a What’s on Guide for Ludlow with a 100,000 print run and regional distribution to attract visitors to our town.

Locally the leaflet is available from Ludlow Visitor Information Centre as well as local shops and businesses throughout Ludlow.

There is also an online version of the leaflet, which is publicised on websites and by social media.

It is also sent outside of Ludlow to help to promote the town and bring in visitors from the West Midlands and Wales as well as other parts of the country. As well as major events like the Ludlow Food Festival and the annual Fringe Arts Festival it also provides details about other events that take place throughout the year in the town including the various markets that are held.

However, the future of the What’s on Calendar and other marketing activities will form part of the consultation exercise that is taking place on future spending by Ludlow Town Council.

Tourism makes a major contribution to the economy of Ludlow.
