Lichfield Heritage Weekend featured talks, entertainment and tours, while historical sites across the city threw open their doors.

Councillor Ian Pritchard, Cabinet member for economic growth, environment and development services, said: “Lichfield Heritage Weekend is an opportunity to celebrate our history and to make it come alive for locals and visitors.

“I’m pleased that the event was busy with many people taking advantage of all that was on offer.

“This year has been extra special as we celebrated a number of centenaries, including votes for women and the end of the First World War.”
