SHAKESPEARE at Ludlow Castle will again be a feature of the Ludlow Fringe this summer.

The festival, which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary, will see a variety of acts perform comedy, theatre, music, dance and more at locations across the town.

It will be launched by the town carnival, which returns after a 15-year absence with an eco theme, and acts include TV comic and impressionist Alistair McGowan, as well as Rob Newman, Ivo Graham, Daniel and Gabriella Martinez Flamenco, Old Time Sailors, Electric Swing Orchestra and the Kakatsiki African Drummers and much more.

There will also be poetry readings, a performance of Macbeth at Ludlow Castle, an exhibition by artist Frances Clarke, Bhangra Tots Family Dance, a comic art masterclass, puppet shows, magician The Great Baldini and Cabaret at the Brewery. Events range from free and pay what you can, to tickets priced between £5 and £20.
