Ludlow Assembly Rooms opened its doors in May 1993 in the restored and updated buildings of the former Assembly Rooms, dating from 1840. The opening was the result of five years of tireless campaigning by a group of local people who believed that our rural community deserved its own place of entertainment.
At first only a limited line-up of entertainment was possible, but the venue proved so popular that over the years the programme has expanded beyond all expectations, and there is now a film or live event almost every night of the year. The lively mixed purpose arts and community venue is very popular and well used, with an estimated footfall of 200,000 per year.
With the continuing venue support from Film Hub NWC, they will focus on the development of 2 main target audiences: 16-30 year olds (with a regular cinema club) and screenings for audiences with additional needs focusing on dementia and autism.
