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 Market

In 2019, our popular Festival Market is back on the first Saturday of our summer Festival with around 140 stalls including arts and crafts, food produce, refreshments and family activities.  There will as usual be free live entertainment from local performers throughout the whole day in front of the Cathedral so after you’ve browsed the stalls, grab some food and find your spot on the grass to enjoy the entertainment.  This is such a great trip out for all the family so don’t miss it!
