Lichfield Arts Fuse Festival 2017 took place on 7-9th July under gloriously sunny skies.

Thank you to the 20,000 visitors who came along and supported the event and our many volunteers who worked tirelessly to make it such a success.

And thanks also to our generous supporters Heavenz Desserts, Lichfield District Council, Swinfen Broun Charitable Trust, The Conduit Lands Trust, Keelys Solicitors, Superstar Academy UK, Brewhouse & Kitchen, and White Stuff.

It was fantastic to see such high attendance and a wide-ranging audience from a varied demographic. Families, children, older people and young people were all there together enjoying the high quality free music on offer.

The music, other arts activities and performances on offer were varied and reflective of the diversity of contemporary Britain.

Easily one of the best organised festivals The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican have played, certainly one of the best sound crews we have worked with, backstage crew were a joy to work with and the audience were sublime. God bless Lichfield Fuse Festival and all that sail with her.

Fantastic event! Great selection of artists and organisation, sound and food were all quality. Cannot believe it’s free of charge. Amazing. Here’s to 2018!
