LICHFIELD FOLK FESTIVAL
Friday 17th to Sunday 19th
A weekend of dance and music
in this lovely cathedral city.
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.

Last year's comments were very helpful!
Free Car Parking
There will be plenty of car-parking - please note that no car park barriers will come down during the Festival (except to secure the camp-site at night), so you can use any of the car parks without fear of being stranded.
