Local talent takes centre stage at Lichfield Folk and Roots Festival



Local performers are ready to steal the show at the first ever Lichfield Folk and Roots Festival.

The event, which runs from October 2 to 4, features plenty of opportunities to catch some of the best local talent.

Friday’s opening evening will see singer/songwriter Emma Rushton kick proceedings off in style, before being followed on Saturday afternoon from 1.30pm by a free concert featuring local performers taking 15 minute spots to showcase their work.

Anyone interested in filling one of these slots can call Stuart Davies on 01543 262223.

And then on Sunday afternoon the ever-popular Bonriff will play for a Ceilidh with star caller Martin Thompson making the dances seem very easy. 

For further information and tickets ring 01543 262223 or check out www.lichfieldarts.org.uk.
