Celebrations & Occasions Tracy Borman announced as new Patron for Lichfield Festival

Lichfield Festival’s four-day Literature Festival returns to the city from 21st to 24th March with a fabulously full long weekend to celebrate the written word. Join us for best-selling authors from the worlds of history, politics, economics, the natural world and current affairs, plus new fiction, memoir and biography to immerse yourself in.

Lichfield Festival are also delighted to announce their newest Patron; author, Tudor historian, broadcaster and joint Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, Tracy Borman.

"Tracy has been a regular and much-loved visitor to both our Literature and Summer Festivals in recent seasons, and we were very proud to have her as our Festival Writer/Historian in Residence in 2023."

Tracy Borman said: “It is such an honour to be invited to become a Festival Patron and means a great deal to me, given how close the Festival - and the city - are to my heart. Lichfield Festival is already such a huge success, and I will look forward both to taking part in future events and shouting about it from the rooftops!”
