Since it began in 1978 the Lichfield Festival of Music, formerly known as Lichfield Competitive
Music Festival, has given an opportunity for thousands of performers to play and sing before other amateurs and receive
the advice and encouragement of adjudicators who are themselves professional musicians.
The Festival continues to attract entrants from many parts of the Midlands and further afield,
who find a welcoming and friendly atmosphere in which to perform. Some of those who have entered in the past have
gone on to make a successful career in music. Many more have developed a love of music which continues to enrich
Members of the committee work hard to make a success of this annual event, as do those
who give time to act as stewards or help in other ways. It is our hope that those who perform and those
who come simply to listen, will derive as much pleasure on the two days of the Festival as those of us involved throughout
the year in its organisation.
Whether singers or players or members of the audience, we look forward to welcoming
you to this year's festival!
