Lichfield Arts do a great job! A wide range of acts throughout the year, 3 festivals, beer festivals and various community initiatives. Wildfire Folk and Blast Off! provide a fantastic opportunity for young musicians to get involved, learn how to perform and learn how to play alongside other musicians. And all run by a great bunch of volunteers!

The Community Night at the Guildhall last night was a real testament to the work of Lichfield Arts - getting all elements of the community involved in performing. Some brilliant music from very talented people. Highly recommend attending their concerts, festivals and events.
I love Lichfield Arts. They keep live music going in our small city. We went to seeBorn Again Beatles at the Guildhall and it was a fantastic night. Well done all, keep up the good work.

Great music on Saturday- shame there was not more room for dancing. Would have felt more relaxed if cabaret style set up rather than rows of seats.

Went to see Paul Lamb & The King Snakes on Sat. Nice venue, lovely wine, friendly staff. Toilets very clean (hand-dryer not working though).
Firstly, I very much appreciate that this venue is run by volunteers. Their enthusiasm and helpfulness reflect their determination to make this organisation successful but also enjoyable for the patrons who attend concerts etc. I don't drink alcohol but I appreciate the bar at the end and the fact that you can get up and get a drink whenever you want. This gives an overall comfortable feel about the place. I love the fact that the Guildhall is used, again, is ensuring that the building is kept alive as I'm sure it was when it was first built.
Lichfield Arts have been around a very long time and being reliant on donations and grant funding, this is quite a feat! They put on some great acts and run some fab festivals such as Fuse and the L2F folk festival. Highly recommend checking out their What's On page and getting along to the gigs.
