UK Literary Festivals Calendar b-March Lichfield Literature Festival

Lichfield Literature Festival


An offshoot of the the annual summer multi-arts festival, The Lichfield Festival, lichfield literature is an autumnal celebration of the written and spoken word.

An eclectic affair featuring author talks, education projects, creative writing workshops and a literary dinner. Apparently, it’s the only book event in a Cathedral City which apparently has no bookshops other than WH Smith. How sad is that.
