Dear Customers and supporters,

Although Fuse 2020 had to be cancelled because of Covid-19 restrictions, we are determined to give the community something to smile about by delivering an excellent Fuse Festival in 2021.

This years Fuse which is due to take place from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th July 2021, will once again be based in Beacon Park, Lichfield. We aim to make Fuse 2021 the best yet! It will include live music concerts, outreach projects, dance and other attractions.

With a new Fuse Project Manager in place, fresh new ideas and a determination to get back to what we do best, we look forward to giving the community a terrific Fuse this year. Meantime don’t forget that Lichfield Arts runs concerts at several venues across Lichfield as well as a Blues & Jazz Festival and L2F The Lichfield Festival of Folk.

Thanks and best wishes.


The Lichfield Arts Team

Lichfield Fuse Festival 2021

Lichfield Arts ran the first Fuse Festival in Beacon Park back in 2001 with the aim of providing live music and activities in a free setting that would be accessible to all, so we are celebrating our 20th birthday this year!

Fuse has grown beyond its humble beginnings into one of the largest free community events of its kind in Staffordshire and the West Midlands, attracting around 18,000 visitors in 2019.

Although so much has changed, the core values and objective remain the same – the Lichfield Arts Fuse team continues to work hard to provide an opportunity for everyone to access a wide variety of live music and the arts. Despite funding pressures, Fuse remains a free entry event, something the team remain immensely proud of.
