Ribble Valley Jazz Festival 2018

3rd - 7th, May Day Bank Holiday Weekend 

We have an amazing line-up featuring international stars and the very best from the British Jazz scene. Watch this video to see some of the headliners.

If you're coming to the Jazz Festival then why not spend the holiday weekend enjoying great music in the historic town of Clitheroe amongst the beauty of the Ribble Valley? Enjoy a meal then a concert then perhaps stay for a night or two in a quality hotel or look at the many excellent campsites in the area.

Please book your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Our ticket sales are done through The Grand, Clitheroe so you can book online through their website or by phone, or call in at their booking office.

Alan Barnes and David Newton have been playing duets together for over 37 years. These multi award-winners cover a vast repertoire from Louis Armstrong to Chick Corea and play with an empathy that can only come with long experience. The emphasis, as always, is on swinging, accessibility and interplay.
