Saturday why not try some retail therapy exploring all those hidden gems of independent retailers we have here in Lichfield? They really do cater for all tastes and if you look hard enough you will find what you are looking for. Most of them will also be open on Bank Holiday Monday.

Experience the BIG GREEN FAIR which has moved from Whittington for the very first time & will be hosted in the Lichfield Guildhall. First talk from Wildlife Kate starts at 11am but lots to see & do throughout the day.

Stop for a bite to eat in one of the many eating establishments and see why people really do enjoy a day out in Lichfield.

Take the kids to the Hen House where they can spend the morning being creative at this local Art School.

How about some DIY? If you are looking for a special light fitting to finish off your decorating then why not 'pop' into Bradshaws Discount Lighting where you will receive 20% off all light fittings this weekend. They are open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday so why not enjoy their hospitality there's even drinks and nibbles!

On Saturday night you can enjoy The Barron Knights at the Lichfield Garrick a blast from the past for anyone of a certain age.

On Sunday if you have not entered this year’s Waitrose Half Marathon you can watch the runners as they race for the finish line in this popular race.

Or what about a family bike ride, this week they are off to Whittington this week for more info ring Freedom Cycles on 01543 411633.

Still need some retail therapy? Then try the first of the season’s car boot sales at Wood End Farm in Curborough from 7am (do phone first to check weather dependent).

 On Monday be part of an attempt for a new Guinness World Record by taking part in The World’s Shortest Fun Run, it will take you just 55 strides to complete so almost anyone can take part & help to raise money for the We Love Lichfield Fund!

Planning your wedding? Need some inspiration? Then take a visit to the fabulous Hawkesyard Estate where you will be wowed by their Wedding Fayre between 11am – 3pm. Loads of exhibitors & special offers on the day.

You can always stroll around the National Memorial Arboretum, visit the Lichfield Cathedral or take the kids karting or let them run off some steam at Go Bananas.

Whatever you choose there really is something for everyone this bank holiday right here in Lichfield!
