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.

Son Yambu


Wed 11 Jul 2018 7:30 pm


Lichfield Garrick Theatre
Event Code: 11F
Price: £16

A night of authentic ‘Son Cubano’ – the essential Afro-Cuban music, originated in the streets of eastern Cuba at the turn of the last century, that is guaranteed to get you dancing.

Since their debut album La Maravilla was released to rave reviews in 2012, Son Yambu have gone from strength to strength. They regularly play at Ronnie Scott’s, are in the middle of their third UK Arts Council Tour of England, have twice featured on Sean Rafferty’s BBC Radio 3 show and are about to release their second album. They already have lots of amazing festival appearances under their belt including Glastonbury, the Cork Jazz Festival, the Shetland Folk Festival and the Rainforest World Music Festival in Borneo – to name but a few!

‘absolutely tremendous… extraordinary music.’ Sean Rafferty, BBC Radio 3

 Running Time: 100 mins (approx.)
