Lichfield Garrick Theatre opened in July 2003 on the site of the previous Arts centre and Civic Hall. The theatre is named after David Garrick – an actor, playwright and theatre manager who lived in the city. The architect was Alan Short, founder of Short & Associates. It is architecturally notable for its unique natural ventilation system, which is an eco-friendly design.

The theatre has a 550 seat main auditorium and a 150 seat studio.

The Lichfield Garrick regularly produces and co-produces work, runs an Artist Development programme and a Community Engagement programme that engages with local schools and arts organisations throughout the year.
