Making life better with music, arts and literature

About this event

Event info

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

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

The Festival also welcomes Bob Cryer, son of comedy legend Barry Cryer, who reveals the story of the man behind the jokes (Same Time Tomorrow?), and hot topics in current affairs are addressed by both Tiffany Jenkins’ book on the thorny question of the Elgin Marbles, Nigel Biggar’s Colonialism: A Moral Reckoning and, in a joint event with the Lichfield Garrick Theatre to close the Festival, Nick Wallis, one of the journalists at the forefront of the Horizon investigation, takes the stage to discuss the jaw-dropping miscarriage of justice that is The Post Office Scandal – The Inside Story.

Once again, the Lichfield Literature Festival has been generously supported by McArthurGlen West Midlands designer outlet.

This superb series of events will all be held in the centre of Lichfield, at The George Hotel, The Hub at St Mary’s and the Garrick Theatre.

Lichfield Literature Festival runs from 21-24 March 2024. Tickets and details from www.lichfieldfestival.org or call 01543 306271.
