THERE is a passion it seems for all things retro and this is reflected at markets and exhibitions held regularly throughout Ludlow and south Shropshire.

One of the most popular is the Century Fairs exhibition and sale held on a number of occasions throughout the year in Ludlow Castle.

But items for sale do not have to be as old as the castle and many popular objects are of a much more recent vintage.

In fact many of the interesting things on display are items that people will remember as part and parcel of their childhood.

Included amongst these are electrical appliances, such as radios, or as they would have been known at the time wirelesses.

The Century Fairs event brings visitors to Ludlow.
