CORONA VIRUS UPDATE :

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.

Ghastly Tales From The Tower 

ONLINE BOOKING FOR THIS EVENT HAS NOW CLOSED. TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO BOOK ON THE DOOR OF THE EVENT (30 MINUTES PRIOR TO START TIME, SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY, CASH PURCHASES ONLY).

Given all the bloody deeds, violent death and intrigues that the Tower of London has witnessed in its 900-year history, there is little wonder that it has the reputation of being one of the most haunted places in Britain. Royal and high-ranking prisoners have been beheaded on Tower Green, there have been hundreds of executions on Tower Hill, and many parts of the fortress have served as prisons, places of misery and suffering for those who fell foul of the law. If any place could lay claim to a host of tortured souls and ghosts, it would be the Tower. Following her sell-out events in 2018, Alison Weir returns to Lichfield to talk about some of the grim events in the Tower’s history, and the ghosts that reputedly haunt it.
