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.
