L2F The Lichfield Festival of Folk

L2F, The Lichfield Festival of Folk, is now established as one of the highlights on the folk music calendar. Lichfield Arts are proud to offer this autumnal feast of the very best in folk, acoustic and dance. 

After the 2020 was cancelled due to Covid, we can’t wait to welcome you to the 2021 Lichfield Festival of Folk! With the full line up to be announced shortly, and the full festival events to be finalised a little later in the year, Lichfield Arts are really excited to be busy planning L2F. 

The first artist to be announced is Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman, who will be starting a week of events at L2F on 16th October at Wade Street Church, with the main festival the following weekend.

At the heart of our community

L2F The Lichfield Festival of Folk brings the community together to celebrate live performance across the Folk genre. With dance, workshops, fringe events and a diverse group of professional artists from across the UK, L2F is a fabulous treat for all fans of folk.

As well as ticketed events and concerts, L2F offers free community elements to the festival which are enjoyed by thousands, such as the city centre based dancing and arts and heritage procession. 

Watch this space for updates on L2F 2021 and don’t forget, before L2F we also have Fuse in Beacon Park in August, and concerts in the Guildhall, St Mary’s Hub and Wade Street Church from September onwards! We look forward to seeing you at our events and look out for us on Social Media.

Fuse festival Go Fund Me CampaignHelp us to deliver Fuse and bring our community back together!

Fuse is free, put on every year by our team of volunteers at Lichfield Arts. Due to Covid-19 our normal fundraising has been severely curtailed right when we need it most to bring our community back together and keep our visitors, performers and volunteers safe. So, we need your help to fill the gap and ensure that Fuse can happen – especially as connecting with our community and loved ones in a safe, enjoyable and engaging way is so important right now.
