LUDLOW Fringe Festival this year has offices that have been donated by Pizza Express in the town centre.

The offices are being used as a base for the Festival and is also selling some tickets for the two week celebration of the arts at the end of June. Others are available from Ludlow Assembly Rooms.

People can also book tickets on-line.

The Fringe has become the ‘main thing’ in Ludlow and the programme this years sees a return of Shakespeare to Ludlow Castle for the first time in many years.

As well as Shakespeare there is theatre throughout the town, music, comedy and dance.

There is a strong emphasis on community involvement and engagement. The Festival starts on Saturday, June 16.
