Call for artists to display their work at Lichfield’s Fuse festival

Artists in Lichfield and Burntwood are being invited to submit work for a sale as part of the Fuse festival.

The Art in the Tent section of the festival is being organised by Lichfield District Council and Lichfield Arts Association.

Celia Houghton, the council’s arts development officer, explained: “The marquee will feature artwork from local artists that will be on sale to festival goers, and we now need artists to reserve the space for their work. They can do this by filling in a simple entry form available from the council’s website.

“Last year’s Fuse festival attracted more than 18,000 visitors, so it is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your art to thousands of people and potential customers.”

Fuse is taking place form July 6 to 8 in Beacon Park. Art in the Tent will be open from noon to 7pm on July 7 and from noon to 5pm the following day.

“We’re also looking for volunteers to help us with the exhibition and artists to hold demonstrations. Please contact me if you are interested in getting involved,” added Celia.

To enter your artwork into Art in the Tent, visit to download and return the entry form. There is limited exhibition space in the marquee, which is allocated on a first come first served basis. The closing date to submit entry forms is June 29.
