[18th February 2016: it doesn’t sound as if the Unicorn is going to reopen any time in the near future, and the Facebook page and web site have apparently been taken down. To the best of my knowledge it’s owned by Enterprise Inns, who may be able to give you more information. If they can’t or don’t, I’m afraid I’m not in a position to offer further advice.]
Further to the sudden cancellation of the February 2017 first Friday session at the Unicorn, Ludlow, due to the pub being closed, it’s been pointed out to me that the Unicorn has a Facebook page here on which it was announced on the 3rd February:
Just to let everyone know. The unicorn is currently closed. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. X
The Unicorn also has a web site here, but there’s no announcement there at the time of writing.
I have no idea what the problem is, whether it’s temporary or how long it will continue, but clearly it might affect future first-Friday sessions and the South Shropshire Blues Club jam held there every two months [The blues jam has moved to the Rose and Crown, as advised elsewhere on this site]. I will, of course, pass on any further information I receive here and on the Sabrinaflu Facebook page, but I don’t live locally myself.
I always suggest that you check with the venue and/or organizers before setting off for events listed on this site – certainly if it involves travelling a significant distance. I don’t always get to know in advance (or at all, necessarily) when/if things change.
Here are the contact details for the venue [but it doesn’t sound as if anyone is responding to queries there]:
The Unicorn, 66 Corve Street, Ludlow, Shropshire, SY8 1DU: Telephone 01584 873 555
