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.

Celebrating Nina:

Festival favourites Black Voices return to Lichfield with their own unique take on the legendary Nina Simone, an artist whose uncompromising stance for social inclusion could not be more relevant in today’s climate. Black Voices had the honour of supporting her in concert many times in France, Germany and the UK and are joined for this special celebration by a 4-piece band and a 5-voice backing ensemble. Featuring her classic songs, Celebrating Nina rejoices in the music, faith, love and life of a much-loved and accomplished musician and vocalist, whose artistry still speaks to everyone who hears her…

BLACK VOICES is the leading, all-female a cappella collective in Europe. The diverse range of musicality and genres in their performances has garnered an international following, drawing in an audience by the simple beauty and power of the human voice via the open and free expression that singing in the black oral tradition promotes.

Such is their critical acclaim and respect amongst the music industry that BLACK VOICES has opened concerts for some of the greatest names in music including Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba and Take 6.
