The Friendship Walk

Following on from 2018’s Willow Walk, this year’s walk will again visit Johnson’s Willow and other places in the area with Johnsonian connections. The emphasis will be on the theme of friendship, inspired by Johnson’s famous comment: ‘A man, Sir, should keep his friendship in constant repair.’

Price: £9, available from the Lichfield Festival Box Office (01543 306 150) or online.



Further outings will be announced as soon as possible.
