Lichfield Arts’ community music & arts festival, Fuse, makes a welcome return next month.

Taking place in the city’s Beacon Park from Friday 12 to Sunday 14 July, the free-to-enter event features live music, dance, poetry, workshops, art activities, food traders, market stalls and two bars.

“This will be the 18th Fuse, and it continues to evolve each year,” says the festival’s project manager, Jeff Fowler. “For 2019, new developments include a tie-up with the Lichfield Festival to introduce acts to each other’s event, an arrangement with funding partner Lichfield BID to bring Fuse performers into the city centre during the festival, and an expanded festival market, including a gin bar to complement our main bar.”
