Border Reelers in full swing at FDTT
There's a Folk Down the Track event this coming Thursday, 21st August; that's 1800 train out of Shrewsbury picking up stations and request stops down the line to Knucklas. There'll be an eclectic mix of musicians at the Castle Inn and often there's singing on the train back! Hereford, Leominster and Ludlow people have to change at Craven Arms both ways (1831/2232). As always it is a great night at the Castle Inn, Knucklas where Chris and her team make people very welcome.
There are also two other superb events coming up this weekend which might be of interest. The first is an excellent event at the Greyhound Inn, Llangunllo, a true village pub in a remote part of Radnorshire which makes it all the more intriguing to get out there and enjoy the beers, cider and music. The festival commences at 1600 on Friday 22nd and every day from noon until close on Monday 25th. If you'd like more information about the festival phone 01547 550400. The village and pub is just over a mile from Llangunllo station (request stop) and so be ready to do some walking in superb scenery. Last train back north to Shrewsbury is just after 2100 so make sure you're on the platform to wave the driver to stop!
At the Sun Inn, Leintwardine, there's the annual Beer and Music Festival and Ludlow 21 will be running a Festival Bus from the Green Festival, Ludlow at 1230 and hourly until 1930 (except 1630)...leaves from the Assembly Rooms... returning at 1305 and hourly until 2005 (except 1705) from outside the Lion at Leintwardine. Return ticket on the bus is £5 with a £1 discount on entry (£5) at the festival if you show your bus ticket!
