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 announces partnership with Lichfield and Tamworth Chamber of Commerce

We’re thrilled to announce our new partnership with Lichfield and Tamworth Chamber of Commerce, part of Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce.

The Chamber’s sponsorship and support of the Festival in 2019 will enable us to forge relationships with many local businesses, through the Chamber’s extensive networks. Chair of Lichfield Festival Board, Helen Wiser, said “We are very excited to have the backing of such an influential business organisation and, as an existing member, we are very proud to see the Chamber investing so demonstrably in the community”.

Chris Brewerton, Lichfield Chamber’s senior relationship and business development manager, said: “We are delighted to have formed this relationship with such an important feature of the region’s arts scene. We believe it is vital for business to support such a great local initiative that is now firmly part of the Lichfield events calendar and we look forward to playing a leading role in encouraging firm to get behind events that attract so many visitors every year.”
