One of our family traditions and a big recommendation (from us all!) is Ludlow Medieval Christmas Fayre. Situated in the historic Shropshire town Ludlow, is 19 miles from Coombys Farm. Super easy to get to! Jam-packed with festive fun, what better way to start the Christmas season? Join in Ludlow’s medieval castle for a magical weekend of entertainment, hands-on activities, delicious food and drink and over 100 stalls of unique gifts and treats!
Food & Drink
After enjoying all the shows and if you've worked up an appetite, then your in for a right treat! (MY FAVOURITE PART!) Quench your thirst with local ales, ciders, hot chocolates (CREAM AND MARSHMALLOWS ARE A MUST!) and not forgetting the famous festive mulled wine! There’s something for everyone, from hog roasts and sweet treats to veggie and vegan delights. So much to choose from its hard to pick!
Ever fancied yourself as a jester? Join in with their circus skills workshops, your hand at axe-throwing or archery or have a go at our crafts for children and families. Don’t forget to take home a personal spell from the Spellwright! On Saturday, the Fayre’s open until 9pm – this is when we go (EVERY YEAR!) and it gets better and better. From wandering minstrels and fighting knights to jesters and giants, there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained all weekend with their packed programme. Enjoy live medieval music, theatre and panto and don’t forget to sing along to the carols! Last year they had more musicians than ever before! You have to Keep an eye out for pop-up performances throughout the castle. With two dedicated stages – the Market Place Marquee and the Castle Garden Stage - plus more in the Inner Bailey, there’s plenty to keep you entertained.
