The management committee of Lichfield Mysteries Community Arts has confirmed the event will go ahead in May 2016.

Plans have been drawn up to use indoor and outdoor venues and groups from all over the area have already committed to the project over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend.

Chairman Peter Chell said: “We believe Lichfield Mysteries is the largest such event in the country which is free of charge to audiences and we wish this to continue.

“We are extremely grateful for the support given to us by local trusts, companies and organisations and we are determined to present a production of which Lichfield can be proud.”

Between 600 and 700 people will take part in the Mystery Plays, performing over the two days of the Bank Holiday, May 1 and 2, 2016. The event attracts thousands of people to the city.

Any company or individual who would like to sponsor the event should email jilltaylor@lichfieldmysteries.co.uk.
