Promotional opportunities for tourism businesses

Visit Lichfield, the council's tourism team, produces a range of not-for-profit guides. From the much loved visitor guide, to What's On, which is published twice a year.

We work to keep advertising in the guides as low-cost as possible, as we only aim to cover the costs of production, rather than produce a profit. Members of the Lichfield District Tourism Association also get a discount on advertising in our tourism guides.

Here's they key deadlines and key contacts to help you find out more:
