Lichfield Festival of Folk is run by Lichfield Arts, a charity foundation set up in 1971 and staffed entirely by volunteers. They are heavily involved with the promotion of local and major musical groups, as well as other arts within Lichfield. They put on around 40 concerts per year.
The Lichfield Festival of Folk started on Friday 14th October at 7pm. It started with a local folk group, The Staffordshire Men, It ended with a well known group called The Young 'Uns, who perform well known folk tunes, with a hint of humour thrown in for good measure.
