This year’s L2F Festival is being held in the atmospheric Lichfield Guildhall from Friday 14th October to Sunday 16th October 2016.

The Lichfield Festival of Folk, otherwise known as L2F, is an annual event from Lichfield Arts and held mainly in the historic Lichfield Guildhall and its environs. Its aim is to provide the opportunity to appreciate the very best in Folk Music in a friendly and welcoming environment. It is inclusive and inspirational, allowing people to participate in folk-related activities and to encourage local arts and heritage organisations to celebrate with the community at large the traditions of the British Isles.

We are fast approaching the fourth Lichfield Festival of Folk (L2F) and what a festival it promises to be! Building on steady development over the last three years, the Festival is establishing itself not only as a fixture in the Lichfield calendar but one that is eagerly looked forward to by concert-goers across the region.
