Organisers of Ludlow Fringe 2020 have released the following statement, announcing the cancellation of this year's event.

Ludlow Fringe – Coronavirus Statement

We have been closely listening to the Government’s advice and recommendations on the containment of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) and have come to the very difficult and sad decision to cancel all our events for Ludlow Fringe Festival 2020. The community is at the heart of all our work and the safety of our staff, audience, performers, venues and volunteers is top priority.

We hope to deliver some great events for you later in the year when the crisis is over and will publish events on our website as and when they are able to happen. It is going to be a difficult time for everyone in the Creative Industries and we look forward to your support in the future.

Until then, stay safe and look after each other.
