Ludlow Castle + Shakespeare Festival

To celebrate Siena’s birthday, our friends Mac and Ros gave us the experience of going to see a Shakespeare Play. As You Like It. When Ros asked us few months before if that would be something we wanted to do while visiting, the kids said right away they did want to go.  Knowing it was a comedy, we thought it might be easier than other plays but we thought we’d read it before we went.

Ludlow, a beautiful town, I’d recommend visiting, if you are in that part of the world.
