ATTRACTIONS, community groups and residents in Tamworth and Lichfield have joined forces to help create a packed programme for the fourth Staffordshire Day.
The county celebration, organised by Enjoy Staffordshire, supported by Staffordshire County Council and the county’s other local authorities, returns on Wednesday 1st May, with plenty of events and special offers to enjoy in Lichfield, Tamworth and beyond.
As the day itself falls midweek, the celebrations have been extended to include the weekend before and the weekend after, so there are events to enjoy from Saturday 27th April to Monday 6th May.
Browse vintage stalls and hear great live music at the National Memorial Arboretum (5th-6th May), and explore the mysterious cellar – not normally open to the public – at Erasmus Darwin House (4th May).
Celebrate the Reliant Robin and meet farmyard friends, at Tamworth Castle Grounds (1st May), thanks to Community Together CIC, brave the thrilling coasters at Drayton Manor Park (4th-6th May), and get crafty on a Goldwork Embroidery Workshop at Burntwood Library (1st May).
Philip Atkins, Leader at Staffordshire County Council, said: “We’re delighted with the way people have rallied to the Staffordshire Day cause and there are lots of ways to get involved in Tamworth and Lichfield.
“The day is all about celebrating what’s great about our county and just how much there is on offer for visitors.
“In Lichfield and Tamworth alone there are a wealth of events and special offers to celebrate our attractions, natural beauty, history and heritage.
“It promises to be a great day and we hope as many people as possible turn out and show their pride in their county.”
There are more than 50 events to enjoy across the county throughout the celebrations, highlighting the range of visitor attractions on offer in Staffordshire and helping communities show their pride in their county.
