Every Saturday starting on 5 May and ending on 30 June, commencing at 12 noon, you are invited to join us at Speakers’ Corner. Whether you have something to say (about anything at all) or you just want to swell the crowd, you are welcome to come along.

The programme is still taking shape, but we expect the focus from week to week to include The Lichfield Mysteries, Euro 2012 and Buskathon’.

The series will end with a great finale on 30 June, when the national Town Criers’ competition will take place on the site from 10.30am until 2pm, and at 12noon we will welcome Olympian triple jumper Ashia Hansen to speak about the Olympic ideal, ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger’.
