LICHFIELD FOLK FESTIVAL

Friday 17th to Sunday 19th 

                June 2016

               **************

 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.

TO GIVE AN IDEA OF WHAT TO EXPECT FOR THE 2016 FESTIVAL

THE DETAILS FOR 2015 WILL BE LEFT IN PLACE UNTIL THEY ARE UPDATED IN EARLY 2016

Suggestions

If you have any suggestions for the improvement of our future festivals please let Freddie have them.
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.
