Be entertained by famous and upcoming artists in Ludlow in 2024”

Meet the team

Anita - Director/Producer

Hello, I'm Anita Bigsby. I'm the Founder, Managing Director and Producer of the Ludlow Fringe Festival.  

I really do love and embrace the whole ethos of what 'Fringe' is and I work tirelessly to create valuable links between artists, businesses and the public across our community, our region, nationally and internationally through the World Fringe Network. There is so much to learn from so many people, in so many creative ways and it makes me very happy to be a part of sharing the joy and excitement of it all!


Zöe - Marketing & PR

I'm Zöe Foster. I'm here to get the Fringe more exposure than ever before!

Conversion, optimisation, content marketing and funnels are my bread and butter, meaning, we'll be powering up the marketing/PR strategy across the web. When I’m not writing copy, I can usually be found at the top of a hill enjoying the solitude that can be found in the Shropshire landscape.


Amana - Programming and Volunteers

Hi, I’m Amana Winchester, I help organise the Fringe, trying to make sure everything runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

If you’d like to be involved as a steward I’d love to hear from you. In my spare time I’m out and about exploring the Shropshire countryside on foot or bicycle.


Erin - Director's and Production Assistant

Hi, I'm Erin O'Hanlon and I am the omnipresent one!

I get everywhere and sort out anything and everything during the festival. I love the 'Arts' and being part of the World Fringe Network has given me opportunities to travel, to meet amazing people, to perform and to get a unique, insider's perspective on the Creative Industry.

I'm also a big reader, a cinephile and I love cooking and eating good food. 

Anne - Carnival Organiser

Hi. I'm Anne Pitts & I'm the go-to person for Carnival prep!

I’m a ‘people person’, so I’ve been heartened to find Ludlow so friendly and welcoming since moving here last year.

I love getting creative in art projects and immersing myself in films, theatre, galleries and audiobooks and I do like a good murder mystery!

Ryan - Technician

Lovely Ryan Maddox is here to help performers get the best out of their performance!

Always there, at a drop of a hat, he will make magic happen for them, quietly and behind the scenes!


Shauna - The American

Shauna Delaney was lucky enough to grow up in Hawaii!

After a career helping young people on the autism spectrum, she retired in Ludlow and jumped into the Fringe as an active volunteer. We are thrilled to have her on our team.
