    SHROPSHIRE GARDENS & CHURCHES OPEN

    The trust was founded in 1991 to assist in the country, of all denominations, with repair and maintenance of their buildings. Many are of historic and architectural interest, often in small villages with tiny congregtions, there is no state funding, so that voluntary help is vital.
    The Trust raises money to provide grants for churches in need, and The Open Gardens Scheme is one of the most effective ways it does this. In return for a modest charge visitors have the opportunity to see a wide range of interesting gardens, the proceeds being divided equally between the local parish church and trust.

    The Ludlow English Song Weekend

    There is nothing quite like the Weekend of English Song. Ludlow is the perfect place for this rich feast of music performed by internationally acclaimed artists. In 2018 we ask the question: how English is English Song? Challenging our own self-definition, we offer a Celtic-flavoured weekend exploring connections between Britain and Ireland. Songs, choral pieces, chamber music, talks, discussions and film – all the ingredients that make up the Ludlow English Song Weekend will be there. New works and young composers will feature again, as will outstanding performers from both sides of the Irish Sea.

    Imagine a weekend in beautiful historic Ludlow, immersed in the endlessly fascinating ?and beguiling world of English poetry and song, where songs centuries old and songs freshly composed are performed, investigated, discussed, and keenly listened to. It’s a rare and complete joy.

    Sir John Tomlinson
