September 18-20 is Lichfield's Heritage Weekend, though to mark Dr Johnson's Birthday it's going to be Georgian-themed this year.

There's a pdf of the leaflet available for download which promises such delights as a second-hand book fair at Wade Street Church, a display of Johnson's letters at Lichfield Library, a tour of Lichfield's Old Grammar School (now part of Lichfield District Council House and not usually open to the public) and the chance to get your silhouette cut by artist Steve Abbott.

Memoirs of the Celebrated Mrs Woffington has tickets for Johnson's tercentenary supper on September 19th, and will be reporting on all the birthday action!
