On May 27th 2013, after the Court of Arraye, the Lichfield Mercury Bower Queen is crowned at 12 noon, outside the Guildhall by the Mayor of Lichfield.

This is then followed by a traditional street carnival which originates from the 12th century, and consists of bands, floats and lots more, led by Green Mans Morris and Sword Club with Guests.

Celebrations continue in Beacon Park with a full programme of family entertainment, large fun fair, trade and charity stalls, band displays, enter your dog into the family dog show, Scruffs – and enjoy a true family day out.
