As part of the Lichfield Festival, Intimate Theatre presents “The Horse, The Crook & The Little Chair – Journeys with Chad” at The George Hotel.
1350 years ago, a man came to Mercia from the enemy kingdom of Northumbria. Without him there would be no cathedral, and no Lichfield, yet he was a meek man, thrust into the maelstrom of Dark Age changes.
Chad, bishop of Mercia, was a pupil of St Aidan of Lindisfarne, sworn to poverty. His diocese stretched across the Midlands from the Wales to the Wash. What was he like? What was Lichfield like? How did he survive as a servant of the gospel & a man of peace, in a kingdom where Vengeance was the unwritten law?
Tickets are £12, available from The Lichfield Cathedral shop in the Three Spires Shopping Centre or online: www.lichfieldfestival.org
