To celebrate Lichfield Heritage Weekend, there will be a fantastic range of historic themed talks, walks and entertainment for all ages.

All of this ties into Lichfield’s first ever Georgian Festival, which is highly anticipated. The festival is all about celebrating and absorbing the Georgian Heritage that is so present in Lichfield.

The free entry festival will include Georgian Encampment in Beacon Park, costumed characters, a Georgian Fashion Show, a Son-et-Lumière light show as well as a Gin Trail and a Tea Trail, lots of live entertainment and more.


Heritage venues will throw open their doors and offer guided tours and activities over the weekend, including The Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum, Erasmus Darwin House, St Mary’s in the Market Square, Lichfield Cathedral, the Guildhall prison cells, Lichfield Record Office in Lichfield Library, Wade Street Church and Dr Milley’s Hospital.

The weekend event will also see Georgian dance workshops, an oriental tea ceremony, Georgian Gin Parlour, Georgian cookery and much more.
