Following the announcement that the Medieval Fayre is no longer viable after the impact of the pandemic and Storm Arwen, the castle trustees have issued a statement. “Powis Estates, who proudly own and maintain Ludlow Castle, are incredibly disappointed that the Medieval Fayre will not be returning to the Castle this year. However in light of Storm Arwen’s devastation, along with Covid-19, the decision is entirely understandable bearing in mind the huge financial losses and the risks involved in putting on future events. “The Castle is owned by Trustees. They remain committed to a five-year £1m rolling programme of maintenance and remedial work to the ruin, in light of its nationally important grade 1 listed status. All profits are reinvested into the ruin to ensure its long-term future.
