Lichfield Festival Of Folk - L2F - 19-21 October

This festival features an array of nationally renowned musicians and bands, local acts, a street procession and dancing from local groups, work-shops and competitions for visual artists and songwriters. Building on the success of the previous five years, the festival takes place in Lichfield Cathedral, Lichfield Guildhall, around the streets of Lichfield, and in local pubs.

L2F 2018 will kick off at Lichfield Cathedral with the internationally acclaimed Sam Kelly and The Lost Boys, with support from Megson. Saturday will feature a wide range of activities, with a street procession, local young performers at the L2F Wildfire Café Stage, workshops at Samuel Johnson’s Birthplace Museum, and music from the likes of The Hut People, Trials of Cato, and The Mighty Doonans at Lichfield Guildhall. Sunday will also feature workshops on poetry, arts and crafts and music and entertainment from the likes of Blair Dunlop, Alden Patterson and Dashwood, Ninebarrow, Granny’s Attic and Banter.

Add in a number of fun events in the lead up to the Festival with a quiz, ceilidh, and an art competition, there is something of interest for all.

L2F Chair Stuart Davies said: "L2F 2018 really has something for everyone with an interest in folk music and folk traditions. Whether it is watching Morris Dancing on Saturday, enjoying some fine live music from leading lights in the Folk music world, or taking part in one of our many workshops. Put the weekend in your diary, buy your tickets, and prepare yourself for a weekend full of fun, education and entertainment."
