Shrewsbury Events

Find out what's on in Shrewsbury

Our events and festival scene provides vibrant entertainment year-round. Shrewsbury hosts a wide range of events throughout the year, including the International Cartoon Festival in April, Shrewsbury Food Festival in June and the Shrewsbury Folk Festival at the end of August.

Although Shrewsbury’s Summer Season first started in the 1700s, our modern version now brings together a celebration of theatre, live music ranging from opera to jazz and plenty of family activities and fun workshops.

One of our favourite (and oldest) festivals is the celebrated Shrewsbury Flower Show, popular with visitors and ladybirds alike. Trust us when we say three million blooms is a spectacular sight, so make sure you bring your camera (and your hay fever tablets!).
