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 Hare and Tortoise Trail begins!

Friday 30th June, 2017

Ready…..set…..GO!” Our Hare and Tortoise models went racing out of their hiding place to their City-centre venue hosts today.  They will be available to see around the City every day until 15th July, when they make their way to new homes through our charity auction.

You can pick up a Trail Map from any of the host venues, from the Festival Office at Donegal House, Lichfield Tourist Information Centre or Lichfield Garrick Theatre.  Alternatively download a pdf of the Trail Map here: Trail Map 2017

Don’t forget to tweet @lichfieldfest with your photos along the trail and let us know whether you are part of #TeamHare or #TeamTortoise!
