VISITORS will find it easier to attend the Ludlow Spring Food Festival, after the event teamed up with Arriva Trains Wales.

The festival, now in its second year, is being held on Saturday and Sunday, May 8-9. Arriva is planning to launch a range of value tickets for families and individuals which allow not only entry to the festival itself, but also travel to Ludlow by train.

“The festival is always popular and we are sure that many more people will want to check out the new producers and flavours at this year's event,” said Vanessa Schotes, head of marketing with the train company.
