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.

Lichfield Festival’s newest Patron, Emma Bridgewater, has become a household name having spent over 30 years building up a successful business, most recognisable in her trademark hand-decorated kitchen pottery (all made in Stoke on Trent, where she has spearheaded a revival in traditional craft skills). Join us for this special event, as she talks about her career and inspirations, in conversation with Dr Kate Romano, a familiar voice on BBC Radio and the new Director of the Lichfield Festival’s Aspire! programme.
