THERE are regular organ recitals for shoppers in Ludlow.

The recitals take place in St Laurence Church.

Talented organists come to the town to play on a Saturday lunchtime.

St Laurence Church is known for its programme of musical entertainments and links with the Ludlow arts fringe festival.

A summer festival of classical music concerts was organised by the former musical director Shaun Ward, who left the role at Easter to concentrate upon his business of making artisan gin.

St Laurence Church is designated as a ‘great church’, placing it between a parish church and cathedral. It claims to be Ludlow’s biggest visitor attraction.
