Singing legend and TV personality Tony Hadley is to become a Patron of Lichfield Festival. The Spandau Ballet singer and I'm A Celebrity star has agreed to lend his weight to the Midlands' premier multi-arts festival which brings world-class music, arts and entertainment to the city.
The announcement was made at a Festival preview held at the House of Commons, hosted by Lichfield Festival's principal partner, London Midland, and introduced by Michael Fabricant MP, himself an enthusiastic supporter and Patron of Lichfield Festival.
Speaking at the event, Tony Hadley said, ”This is the first arts charity I've been invited to support and I was delighted to be asked. For me, the importance of supporting the arts is in the impact that it has on individuals of all ages. I know Lichfield well through family connections and I'm really excited to see where my patronage of the Lichfield Festival will lead in the future.”
He strengthens the Festival's line-up of existing patrons: Lichfield MP and arts enthusiast Michael Fabricant MP; the celebrated former cellist, now Principal of Birmingham Conservatoire, Julian Lloyd Webber; and Russian conductor and artistic director of St Petersburg's famous Mariinsky Theatre, Valery Gergiev.
