People are being given the chance to play their part in Samuel Johnson’s birthday celebrations by having their face included in a light show in Lichfield.

Artists Peter Walker and Andy McKeown will be in the Guildroom of the Guildhall from 11am to 5pm on May 2 to collect the faces and favourite things of visitors and locals in Lichfield.

The images will then form part of a light and sound show planned by Lichfield City Council and the Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum to celebrate Johnson’s Birthday in September.

Participants are asked to go along with a special possession to be photographed as they are to see their image projected onto the Birthplace building in the Market Square during the free display taking place in September.
