A weekend of dance and music
in this lovely cathedral city.
English Country dancing at its best!
Dances - Displays - Workshops - Morris Tours
Lichfield Folk Festival's base plus it's 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.
