The Lichfield Festival brings the best national and international artists and performers to the West Midlands each year for a summer celebration of classical music, dance, drama, film, jazz, literature, poetry, visual arts and world music.
Our aim is to present high quality events from across the world in historic and unusual settings, providing access to vibrant new experiences for as many people as possible.
Performers as diverse as Oscar Peterson, Mstislav Rostropovich, Stephen Fry, Maxim Vengerov, Philip Glass, Anoushka Shankar, Linda Smith, Evgeny Kissin, Timothy West, Djivan Gasparyan, Marin Alsop, Soweto Gospel Choir and Sir Simon Rattle, amongst others have appeared since 1982.
Our learning and participation programme lies at the heart of the Festival’s activities. Through workshops, free community events, master classes and schools projects we provide people of all ages with an opportunity to explore their creativity.
The Lichfield Festival was shortlisted for the Concert Series category of the 2008 Royal Philharmonic Society Awards, Britain’s leading awards for live classical performance.
