English Country dancing at its best!

Lichfield Folk Festival's base plus its adjacent caravan site are located on Borrowcop Hill, which is one of three, which overlook this attractive cathedral city .The camp site itself is adjacent to the extensive playing fields of the old King Edward VI Grammar School. As such, it offers a near rural setting, within the city, on its south side, and faces towards the vale of the river Trent.

Gary Roodman most generously choreographed Lichfield's Ruby Surprise , to splendid Corelli music, a dance to celebrate our 40th Festival in 1915. It is in his new book. We had a chance to dance it during his workshop & evening dance during the weekend. You can order the book by contacting Derek and Ann Appleing at Folk Sales phone 01242 692243 or email
firstname.lastname@example.org. They can deliver orders to the 2016 Festival.
There's plenty to see in Lichfield and Staffordshire: http://www.visitlichfield.co.uk/ plus Cannock Chase and Shugborough Hall too.
