Lichfield Arts

In our opinion it offers one of the best value Festivals around especially when you look at the quality performers we have throughout including Kimbers Men, John Kirkpatrick, Les Barker, The Jigantics, Folklaw and PIG. In addition to a tremendous line-up we have Fringe events which are generally free. You really won't be disappointed and with £38 for a full festival ticket or day tickets from £12.50 it offers a great opportunity for quality entertainment at an affordable price.

New for this year the L2F Festival Market! Take the opportunity to stock up on some early Christmas presents at our quality craft market in the Guildroom on Saturday 26 October. Just ask any of the volunteers accompanying the morris sides, mummers and Jack in the Green performing in the city centre during the morning for directions to what promises to become a real gem in the Festival calendar.
