THIS Saturday is one of the most important in the year for fund raisers at the Ludlow Assembly Rooms.

It is the time of the year again for the annual mega book sale.

This provides vital funds for the arts facility.

It is also a great chance for people to pick up a book bargain and also search for CDs and DVDs.

The Ludlow Assembly Rooms receives its money from a range of sources but would not be viable if it had to depend entirely upon takings from the Box Office.

There are a range of grants including from Ludlow Town Council.

But nevertheless the volunteers who ‘work’ at the Assembly Rooms and raise vital funds are crucially important.

The Assembly Rooms is currently undergoing a major restoration and refurbishment but Oscars within the building is open and will host the sale between 9am and 5pm.
