About Lichfield Arts
With current Covid lockdown in full force but with one eye on vaccinations we have taken the decision to postpone any events until late April. Should there be any significant change in the current Covid restrictions we will review this and communicate any changes.
However we are still busy at Lichfield Arts planning our programme for post lockdown this will hopefully include Fuse Festival, L2F and Blues & Jazz. If lockdown has given you time to think about how you spend your leisure time and would like to join us we would love to hear from you, especially if you have an accountancy background ( we are looking for a new Treasurer)
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
Lichfield Arts is pleased to announce two exciting volunteer opportunities!
Lichfield Arts is looking for a volunteer Treasurer to join our enthusiastic team of trustees to oversee the financial affairs of the organisation. This interesting, varied role involves ensuring the finances are lawful and within accepted accounting practices and the organisations constitution. It is also an opportunity to be involved in shaping the future of Lichfield Arts.
This is a voluntary role that involves: ensuring proper financial records are kept and that effective financial procedures are in place; managing and reporting on the financial health of the organisation; overseeing the production of necessary financial reports/returns, accounts and audits; overseeing the production of an annual budget; and monitoring actual income and expenditure against budget. Support will be provided by Lichfield Arts’ Accounts Assistant and Office Manager, with the role focusing more on higher level financial control. The time commitment varies throughout the year but averages approximately 3 hours a week.
This voluntary position would suit a competent, honest, reliable person who would like to be part of a friendly, enthusiastic team that delivers so much to the local community. An interest in music and the arts would be welcomed but is not essential.

Wildfire Folk Chair and Secretary Roles:
Wildfire Folk is a hugely successful youth project based in Lichfield. Formed 12 years ago from a Lichfield Arts Outreach project, it has encouraged young people in a vibrant and exciting interpretation of traditional music. On the way to performing at major festivals and community events and having produced 4 EP’s they have provided young people with expert tuition and been a vehicle for social and musical development and, of course, a great deal of fun!
Now a not-for-profit organisation in its own right, Wildfire Folk is largely administered by their hard-working volunteer trustees and also employ a first class Musical Director. Both the Chair and the Secretary have recently announced their intention to stand down. Wildfire Folk is now looking for community minded individuals to take up their roles and help to move this exciting project on to its next stage.
Each individual would be able to show team leading skills, be happy to work in an informal and supportive environment, show good communication skills and have a real commitment to enabling young people. To find out more: Wildfire Folk Recruitment
