Music and dance fans are being urged to put dates in their diaries ahead of the 2010 Fuse music festival in Lichfield.

Organisers of the event have confirmed that the 10th free community music and arts festival will take place in Beacon Park July 9 to 11 next year.

And the theme for the event will be Dance Your Socks Off!

Fuse aims to give local people and visitors in the district the chance to experience or take part in a wide variety of arts events and activities – and the 2010 theme means there will be plenty of dance workshops and events as well as music, performances, art and crafts.

Every year Lichfield Arts also runs an Outreach Project in the weeks leading up to Fuse and next year it will involve local people of all ages in workshops and rehearsals leading to a large, exciting, innovative community dance performance at Fuse.

Lichfield Arts are working with the Garrick Theatre and Lichfield District Council and are inviting local schools, dance and community  groups to special presentations to explain the project further on November 24.

Groups that want to be involved will need to be willing to work with new and experimental dance ideas.

The presentation for primary schools is at 5pm and the presentation for other interested high schools, dance and community groups is at 7pm in the Ashmole Room, the Guildhall, Bore Street, Lichfield.

Fuse Director, Tim Perks, said:

“We are delighted to be working with the Garrick Theatre and Lichfield District Council on this exciting project, which aims to get people involved in dancing and enjoying different aspects of dance. We hope the local community will get involved with the spectacular show at Fuse 2010”.

Anyone interested in being part of Dance Your Socks Off! can contact Lichfield Arts on 01543 262223 or e-mail

    Comic Relapse would be pleased to run “Strictly Come Dad Dancing” if that would be helpful…
