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.

Journeys with Chad

1350 years ago, a man came to Mercia from the enemy kingdom of northumbria. Without him there would be no cathedral, and no Lichfield, yet he was a meek man, thrust into the maelstrom of Dark Age changes. Chad, bishop of Mercia, was a pupil of St Aidan of Lindisfarne, sworn to poverty. His diocese stretched across the Midlands from Wales to the Wash. What was he like What was Lichfield like? how did he survive as a servant of the gospel & a man of peace, in a kingdom where Vengeance was the unwritten law?
