In a first for Lichfield Food Festival, 80s pop sensation Hue and Cry will play a live acoustic set on the grounds of Lichfield Cathedral.
In association with Cocker Hoop Creative, Lichfield Food Festival is proud to present Hue and Cry Live at Lichfield Cathedral on Saturday 27 August 2016 at 7.30pm.
Hue and Cry are two brothers, Greg and Pat Kane, who’ve been making soul, jazz and pop music since the 1980s with hits including Labour of Love and Looking for Linda.
Jon Arrowsmith, Director of Cocker Hoop Creative, said: “Seeing Hue and Cry in the stunning surroundings of Lichfield Cathedral will be a perfect end to the first day of Lichfield Food Festival.
“Hue and Cry have been entertaining us for years with their soulful hits, and it’s such an honour to be working with them on this open air set.
“We’re really excited to be offering this event for free, but we’re urging festival goers to make sure they arrive in good time as entry is on a first come first served basis.”
On top of the two-hour live music set, there will be a range of street food stalls and pop up bars available.
There are 1,500 free entry places to see Hue and Cry Live at Lichfield Cathedral, and festival organisers are advising people to arrive at around 6.30pm, to stand a good chance of getting in and time to set up deck chairs, buy refreshments and settle in for two hours of quality music.
There is lots more on offer throughout Lichfield Food Festival on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August, including a massive range of food and drink stalls and street food throughout the city centre, cookery demonstrations, free craft and cupcake decorating at Three Spires Shopping Centre, a Birthday Bake Off, a brewers’ event and much more.
Lichfield Food Festival is organised in partnership by Lichfield BID, Cocker Hoop Creative, The Kitchen Shop, Three Spires Shopping Centre, Lichfield Arts, Lichfield Cathedral, Cakeydora and the Lichfield Garrick. It is also supported by Lichfield District Council.
The festival is sponsored by main sponsors Central England Co-operative and Tempest Ford, along with MCL Create, Tippers, Taste of Staffordshire, Lichfield Chamber of Trade & Commerce, The Smile Centre, Pom’s Kitchen & Deli and The Best of Lichfield.
