Dan, Jo, Tracy and Warren, Beacon Park’s Easter Bunny

‘The best guide’ to events across Lichfield District and surrounding areas has been launched by some colourful characters.

Lichfield District Council’s Tourism Team, Visit Lichfield, has put the finishing touches to its What’s On brochures, which have been sent out to local homes this month, ready for the spring and autumn seasons.

What’s On lists events taking place across Lichfield District from March to the end of August, including spring events, such as Beacon Park’s Easter trail, Sam’s Easter Detective Trail at The Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum and Easter at Erasmus Darwin House, which includes an Erasbunny trail, tours and more.

It is also a fantastic resource to plan the summer festival season, with Lichfield Greenhill Bower, Lichfield Home and Garden Festival, Lichfield Blues and Jazz Festival, Burntwood Wakes, Fuse Festival, Lichfield Festival, Lichfield Food Festival and more listed.

There’s also plenty going on at Beacon Park with its first Drive-in Movie, Grease, playing in the park on 12 August and Lichfield Proms to end the summer in style.

This year Visit Lichfield is promoting the Garrick300 festivities, celebrating the 300th birthday of David Garrick with special productions at the Lichfield Garrick, including the Shakespeare play Cymbaline at the Lichfield Garrick, as well as talks, workshops, children’s activities, a Garrick300 Community Party on Staffordshire Day, and a Georgian Gardens Weekend taking place at venues across the city and district.

Councillor Helen Fisher, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Tourism & Communications, said: “The spring and summer What’s On brochure is packed with events and activities to appeal to the whole family. It’s such a handy way to plan your upcoming diary, so make sure you keep hold of your copy.”

The What’s On brochures have been sent to local homes and are also available at Tourist Information in St Mary’s in the Market Square and other visitor attractions across the city and district.
