This year’s Lichfield Festival starts on 3 July and closes on the 13th with a programme of music, theatre, visual arts and film.
A nice touch (cos I look for this things) is a blog by the Festival Director, Richard Hawley, who has been posting his thoughts up all this week.
You can see the festival programme but it’s worth highlighting the local talent on show:
- Dancer, director and chereographer, Rosie Kay, will perform her current project, The Wild Party, for the last time at the Garrick Theatre on Sat 5 July.
- Thomas Trotter, Birmingham’s city organist, will play at Lichfield Cathedral on 7 and 9 July.
- PolarBear, described as ‘one of Britain’s foremost performance poets‘, is doing a late night session at the Garrick Studio on 9 July.Â I’m listening to the tracks on his MySpace as I type this and he’s really (really) good.
