THE latest headline act for the summer's series of Ludlow Castle concerts has been confirmed.

The rock band Elbow will be playing at the venue on Friday July 26, supported by Villagers, Nadine Shah and Katherine Priddy.

The announcement completes the series of concerts planned for the venue with James, Madness and Anne-Marie previously confirmed.

Having released their first record in 2001, Elbow have released eight further albums with tracks like One Day Like This and Grounds for Divorce.

The band has won awards including the Mercury Music Prize, a Brit award, Ivor Novello awards and more.

This year marks the release of the bands landmark 10th studio album Audio Vertigo, which comes out on March 22, with the leading single Lovers' Leap.

Ludlow Castle was recently given permission to increase the number of gigs each summer from four to eight.

The expansion was proposed after a successful concert series in 2023, featuring Rag n Bone Man, Kaiser Chiefs, Bastille and Nile Rodgers.

The events were said to boost numbers to the town, with around 7,000 people in the crowd at each one.
