HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE LICHFIELD FESTIVAL
2011 is a very special year for us. In July we will be presenting our 30th Festival, and to acknowledge this anniversary we are preparing a strong programme with acknowledgements to the past and a clear vision of the future.
We will be revealing all over the next few months, so do keep reading this blog and please recommend them to your friends. They can subscribe on our website: www.lichfieldfestival.org
In the meantime, many thanks to you for continuing to support the Lichfield Festival.
Book Now for Lichfield's Spring Fair
The Lichfield Festival is calling on local artists, craftspeople and food producers to sign up for the Lichfield Festival Spring Fair on Sunday 1 May.
The Spring Fair is part of the Lichfield Festival's 30th anniversary plans to make 2011 a very special year. In addition to providing shopping delights and entertainment, the Fair will mark the launch of the programme for the summer Lichfield Festival.
If you make things and want to be able to sell them in the centre of Lichfield, the Spring Fair is the event for you. And if you want to find out what Lichfield's creative people are making, there will be plenty to buy.
The Lichfield Festival Spring Fair will be held in the city's Market Square.
To find out more and book a stall, go to www.lichfieldfestival.org and download the booking form. If you have any questions, contact Market Organiser Jennifer Smith on 01543 306275 or email email@example.com.
