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.

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.
