Fuse 2020 Update

We are sad to announce that Lichfield Arts’ annual free Fuse Festival will not be held in July this year due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic. However, we are monitoring government announcements and recommendations to see if we can create an alternative event later in the year. We are flexible and can move quickly if the situation changes.

So, with the help of our brilliant suppliers and supporters we are exploring alternative options as more information becomes available. Nothing is certain yet, but rest assured we will do everything we can to bring some much needed joy into people’s lives by delivering Fuse in some form later in the year. We will keep you updated with any developments.

Lichfield Fuse Festival 2020

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 19th 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.
