With national and international callers and bands, three venues on one site, and an exciting choice of activities
featuring dances, dance workshops and music workshops.

Rosemary Hunt, Ivan Aitken, Neil Franklin, Nicola Scott, John Hymas and Denise Bearon.



If you are coming to Festival this weekend please note that the delay from roadworks in Lichfield can be minimised as follows:

If you are coming from the South, you should  not be affected by diversions, but note that there are 4 way traffic lights at the junction of Upper St John Street (A51) and Tamworth Road. Notices say that the road towards our Festival school is closed, but there is still access to our Festival school, so ignore the road closed notices (it is closed much further up).

If travelling from the North, we suggest you use the bypass and A38 round Lichfield to approach from the South, to come in on the second Lichfield A38 exit, on the A5206.
