Friday 19th to Sunday 21st June 2015


 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.

Please join us in wearing something red at the Saturday evening dances to continue our Ruby theme




Gary Roodman has most generously choreographed a special dance to celebrate our 40th Festival. It is in his new book, which will be available at the Festival, and there will also be a chance to dance it during the weekend. Look out for Lichfield's Ruby Surprise, by Gary Roodman, to splendid Corelli music. You can pre-order the book by contacting Derek and Ann Appleing at Folk Sales, to pick up at the Festival at Gary’s dance slots: phone 01242 692243 or email derek-ann@folksales.co.uk

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.
