An annual Lichfield music event is being given a makeover. Lichfield Arts’ Roots and Folk Festival will be relaunched in October under its new name of the Lichfield Festival of Folk or L2F. The event – which runs from October 25 to 27 – already has a number of names lined up including John Kirkpatrick, Kimbers’ Men, Les Barker, Meet on the Ledge, Jigantics and Folklaw. However, spots are also available on the bill for local talent. Interested musicians are invited to send an mp3 of their sounds to or post a CD to Lichfield Festival Of Folk, Lichfield Arts, Donegal House, Bore street, Lichfield, WS13 6LU.
