Guest callers/bands :2015
Callers & Bands already confirmed:-
David & Kathryn Wright,
(Mollie Koenigsberger and Vic Smith),
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.
Thank you to all the dancers who attended the 2014 festival, we are very grateful for your support and sincerely hope you enjoyed the experience.
Many thanks to the Callers & Bands for coming to perform for us.
We could not have had such a good time without you.
The KE kitchen team worked very hard to give us a good variety of tasty food throughout the weekend.
