The Lichfield Mysteries took centre stage at a conference.

Project Manager Jill Taylor outlined how the city’s productions have evolved over the years since they were first performed in 1994.

The event was hosted by the York Mysteries.

Jill said: “I am delighted to have been asked to help celebrate York Mystery Plays’ 21st birthday

“Here in Lichfield it is also 21 years since our own mystery cycle was revived, using fragments of our original plays, bolstered by adaptations of scripts from other towns and cities.

“In the intervening years we have done seven main productions, learned a huge amount, evolved considerably, made lots and lots of friends and had enormous fun!”

Lichfield Mystery Plays are a community-based arts project spearheaded by a Management Committee of volunteers.

Twenty-seven local groups join forces with professionals to present what is believed to be the largest such event in England to be free of charge to participants and spectators.
