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.

Nico Muhly:
Land in an Isle (world premiere)

One of the most exciting consorts in the early music field, La Nuova Musica’s Lichfield Festival debut features a recital of arias and instrumental works inspired by the cities of Rome and Venice. They are joined by Staffordshire-born star soprano Lucy Crowe, one of the leading voices of her generation and a regular guest on the world’s greatest stages, including Covent Garden and the Metropolitan opera, New York.

Nico Muhly’s Land in an Isle is co-commissioned by La Nuova Musica with the support of the Fidelio Charitable Trust, and by Wigmore Hall with the support of André Hoffmann, president of the Fondation Hoffmann, a Swiss grant-making foundation
