FUSE 2020

Lichfield Arts ran the first Fuse Festival in Beacon Park back in 2001 with the aim of providing live music and activities in a free setting that would be accessible to all, so we are celebrating our 19th year this year!

Fuse has grown beyond its humble beginnings into one of the largest free community events of its kind in Staffordshire and the West Midlands, attracting around 18,000 visitors in 2018.

Although so much has changed, the core values and objective remain the same – the Lichfield Arts Fuse team continues to work hard to provide an opportunity for everyone to access a wide variety of live music and the arts. Despite funding pressures, Fuse remains a free entry event, something the team remain immensely proud of.
