As part of L2F – The Lichfield Festival of Folk, we are pleased to offer a great afternoon of entertainment set in the leafy surrounds of Woodhouse Farm in Lichfield. Enjoy live music and morris dancers as well as the shortlisted songs from the L2F Song Writing Competition for an afternoon of folk on the farm.

As well as great live music you can enjoy either a delicious barbecue or a Picnic included in the ticket price, with both offered as a vegetarian option. All items are freshly handcrafted on the farm from their own produce.

In order to facilitate food requirements, we will be unable to offer ticket sales on the day.
