Get into the seasonal spirit with a tour of historic city
People living in the vicinity of historic Lichfield in Staffordshire are being invited to get into the festive spirit with a choice of Christmas-themed city tours. The line-up of tours, presented by Visit Lichfield. will be all the more special following the switching on of Lichfield's spectacular Christmas lights at the end of November. For a festive treat with a creepy edge to it, the tours get going in earnest during December, starting with Lichfield's Ghostly Christmas, which is being run on both Friday 10 December and Friday 17 December at 7pm. Participants can expect to hear spine-tingling, gruesome and ghostly tales with a festive twist. The seasonal entertainment continues with a Christmases Past tour on December 15 at 3pm when people can find out about the history of Christmas traditions. People are advised to wrap up warm and also bring a torch to hear fun festive stories and facts. For something a little different, people are also invited to join in with some carol singing on the Discover Christmas in Lichfield with Carols tour on Saturday 18 December at 6pm and Wednesday 22 December at 3pm.

Families will also be delighted to hear that Visit Lichfield's Christmas Stocking Filler Tour is back for 2021. It includes fascinating stories about the origins of Christmas traditions and wishing city businesses a Merry Christmas while collecting traditional stocking fillers along the way. The tour takes place on Thursday 23 December at 3pm and costs £6 each or £16 for a group ticket which is for two children and one adult over the age of 18. And, if that isn't enough fun and excitement for the festive season then, to wrap things up. there is an opportunity to take part in a Discover Lichfield on New Year's Eve tour on Friday 31 December at 2pm to top off the festive-themed tour events.
