LICHFIELD FESTIVAL EARLY BOOKING SHOWS


Anyone who has been remotely near Lichfield in July will know that festival fever grips the city at that time of year. And this year’s Lichfield Festival (4-14 July) will be no exception, brimming with good things to tempt you whether your tastes are for theatre, music, art, shows for the kids, or picnicking by the cathedral and soaking up the atmosphere. A full rundown of what’s on this year is still to come but, to whet the appetite, the Festival has announced a few exciting events with early bird booking from 5 March.


We’re tipping the opening event in Lichfield Cathedral on Thursday 5 July as a very hot ticket indeed! It’s a brand new dance show featuring Neil and Katya Jones. The Strictly Come Dancing stars have 70 major international trophies between them and are World Champion Latin dancers. This bespoke show has been commissioned exclusively by Lichfield Festival with ballroom and Latin dancers in solo and group dances. Not to be missed!


Restaurant critic Jay Rayner has reviewed over 700 establishments and in his entertaining show - My Dining Hell – he recounts some of the most excruciating nights out he’s ever had! When he’s not reviewing restaurants, he’s playing the piano. He formed the Jay Rayner Quartet in 2012 and they’ve been busy gigging at some of the great cabaret and jazz clubs, including the legendary Ronnie Scott’s. He’s at Lichfield Garrick Theatre on Friday 13 July.


Two rib-tickling comedy shows are also on the early booking list. Tom Allen is known to many through his numerous TV appearances on shows such as 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, BBC’s Live at the Apollo and Mock the Week. He’ll be entertaining Lichfield with his trademark sharp, acerbic wit and camp, riotous storytelling at the Garrick Theatre on Saturday 7 July. Then on Saturday 14 July, also at the Garrick Theatre, there’s Mark Steel, star of Radio 4’s Mark Steel’s in Town and newspaper Columnist of the Year. His new show is called Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright, which is good to know given that not long ago it seemed highly unlikely the UK would leave the EU and Donald Trump was a buffoon who would surely never become President. An evening sure to make the world seem even more crazy than it already is!
