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.

Created and brought to life by local community groups, giant puppets of the Festival Animal Puppetry Parade will process through the City Streets, accompanied by music from local performers. Working with professional artists, groups will create the puppets in workshops leading up to the Festival before revealing them in the parade. Join us to watch this visually striking event starting at 6pm from outside The Guildhall, Bore Street.

If your group or school would like to participate in this exciting project please contact the festival office on 01543 300191.

Join us at our Noye’s Fludde Family Concert directly after the Parade (see event 7E for details).

The Puppet Parade is supported by Lichfield District Council and Swinfen Broun Charitable Trust through the Lichfield City Art Fund. This project also receives support from Lichfield BID.
