The Lichfield Festival had been boosted by a “substantial” new grant.

The annual arts festival will feature performances by a range of comedians and musicians as well as theatre productions and talks by authors.

And the efforts to stage the event have been aided by a donation from Lichfield City Council.

Tony Bateman, chairman of the Lichfield Festival, said: “The festival brings enormous pleasure to thousands of people as well as bringing a substantial number of visitors to Lichfield.

“We are very pleased that the benefits to the city are recognised by the various grant funding and commercial sponsors who help the event to go ahead.”

The 2014 Lichfield Festival runs from July 4 to 13.
