Charities set to benefit from festive show at the Lichfield Guildhall

A festive show in Lichfield is set to raise money for charity.

The Twelve Days of Christmas

The Twelve Days of Christmas

The Guildhall will host The Twelve Days of Christmas production on November 30.

The show will raise money for the nominated charities of Councillor David Leytham, Chairman of Lichfield District Council, and Councillor Bob Awty, Mayor of Lichfield City Council:

  • Lichfield Young Carers
  • Lichfield Arthritis Care
  • Friends of Samuel Johnson Community Hospital
  • St Giles Hospice

“What better way to get that Christmas feeling than by watching a festive play set in the Victorian period?” said Cllr Leytham.

“I hope we have a full house as it not only promises to be an enjoyable evening, but will also help to raise money for vital local charities.”

Presented by Distraction Theatre Company, The Twelve Days of Christmas follows Miss Elizabeth Fairfax and her rather unusual Christmas of 1895. Mr Edward Fitzwilliam is in love with Miss Fairfax, but since she is a ‘most charming and dear creature; no ordinary wooing will do’. Watch as Miss Fairfax tries to cope with a few extraordinary presents and the most ridiculous twelve days of her life!

Cllr Awty added: “I am pleased to be joining the Chairman in hosting this show for all the family in aid of our chosen charities. It will be a wonderful start to the lead up to Christmas.”

Tickets cost £12 and can be booked by calling 01543 308003.
