Formed over fifty years ago, Lichfield Arts is an independent registered charity (Charity Number 1156217) based in the centre of Lichfield which is mainly run and supported by volunteers.
Lichfield Arts runs around 30 concerts each year covering wide genres of music in a variety of venues. We also organise three major festivals each year, including our flagship Fuse festival in July, which is one of the Midlands biggest and most popular free community festivals.
This is preceded in June by the Lichfield Blues & Jazz Festival and in October we hold L2F – Lichfield Festival of Folk.
The OSCA Centre is a friendly local community centre which has a main hall, with a raised stage, that can hold 90+ using retractable seating, a fully fitted kitchen and eating area, and a sizeable meeting room.
The hall can be used for the performance of drama and music plus activities such as Tai Chi and can be hired including or excluding the meeting room but always with use of the kitchen and foyer.
In certain circumstances the kitchen can be hired separately.
Current regular users of the centre include The Gateway Club, Atherstone Amateur Dramatics, Leading Players, Tai Chi Qigong & Holistic Health, and Atherstone Theatre Workshops.
In conjunction with Live & Local and Atherstone Folk Club, there are 5 to 6 performances a year in addition to the users’ performances and those staged by OSCA themselves.
