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.

Barbara Erskine

The Ghost Tree 

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).

Barbara Erskine is the author of many bestselling novels that demonstrate her interest in both history and the supernatural, plus three collections of short stories. Her books have appeared in at least twenty-six languages. Her first novel, Lady of Hay, has sold over three million copies worldwide.

The inspiration for The Ghost Tree lies in Barbara Erskine’s own personal history branching back to the days of Thomas Erskine, her great grandfather, five times removed. Once again, the Sunday Times bestselling author brings the past to life in vivid, spellbinding colour and we are very excited to welcome her to Lichfield Literature.

Sorting through her late father’s possessions Ruth discovers a hidden diary from the eighteenth century. As she sifts through the ancient pages of the past, Ruth opens a door to the past that she can’t close, and meets a ghost in her family tree who wasn’t invited. She will have to draw upon new friends and old in what will become a battle for her very survival.
