It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads


Sun 08 Jul 2018 3:00 pm


Lichfield Garrick Studio
Event Code: 8D
Price: £15

Artist in Residence Series

Join us for a new Lichfield Festival production of an Alan Bennett Talking Heads double-bill: two superb shows – just one ticket!

Her Big Chance
Meet Lesley, an actress. She has just completed a video – ‘targeted chiefly on West Germany’ in which she plays Travis, a career girl who enjoys life, spends a remarkable amount of time topless and shoots a man with a harpoon gun.

A Lady Of Letters
Miss Ruddock writes letters. Letters of complaint, comment and, occasionally, officious praise to various businesses and government departments. Eventually her complaining gets her into trouble, but she’s happy at this point, for possibly the first time.

A Lichfield Festival production directed by Artist in Residence Jessica Walker


Running Time: 100 mins (approx.)
