Below is our What’s On Event Calendar at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre. We have an events programme jam packed with fun for all the family. With cookery courses, family activities and community events, we have an activity for every occasion, all year round.
We have a range of courses for adults including our popular cookery courses in our Ludlow Food Festival pop up kitchen. Our courses run regularly so keep an eye on our website for updates. Or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know what’s going on.
As well as our monthly Discovery Club, on the last Saturday of every month, we have activities for the children every weekday of every school holiday. We also have children’s activities that run alongside our major events.
Our events programme also includes major events that assist us in fundraising as well as providing a much needed service for the community.
Our major events include the Shropshire Way 80K Festival, the Craven Arms Community Bonfire and Firework Display, our Summer Family Fun Day and more!
Home to our panoramic film in our exhibition, our rotunda space was refurbished in 2017. Since then, we have held live jazz gigs, folk music performances and Flicks in the Sticks films.
See our list of forthcoming events below. If you have any questions or would like to discuss holding your event here, please contact us.
