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.

The Malachites – Macbeth


Fri 12 Jul 2019 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Lichfield Guildhall
Event Code: 12E
Price: £17

Political ambition, lies, civil war, treason and murder…something wicked this way comes. “The Scottish play” comes to the Festival, in the expert hands of Festival regulars, The Malachites. Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth lays bare a marriage, as the love of power for power’s sake leads to madness and bloody death.

We regret to inform you that the lift in the Guildhall is currently broken and awaiting repair, therefore there will regrettably be  no lift access for this performance (the performance space is accessed via a flight of stairs).
