For Volunteers

We're a voluntary organisation so we always need more help. If you have some spare time or a passion for keeping music live in Clitheroe and the Ribble Valley then please get in touch.

There are so many ways to get involved, organising raffles, collecting tickets distributing leaflets, joining the Jazz Collective band, helping with marketing, writing press releases, contributing to our Facebook and Twitter sites, wearing a Jazz Fest t-shirt etc. If you have other ideas of how you can help then please do contact us.

If you're too busy, you could sponsor one of our bands, an event or the Jazz Festival and enjoy hospitality for you and your friends or business colleagues.

Cultural Diversity - A Brief Statement

Ribble Valley Jazz & Blues prioritises the need to promote culturally diverse events & festivals. When employing artists and musicians, and engaging audiences at events and festivals we expect to include equal and valued contributions from people who might not otherwise have opportunity to engage fully in jazz as an art form.

We want equal participation from women, younger & older people, people from black & minority ethnic communities, people of differing sexual orientation, disabled people, people from various geographical communities, and people experiencing low income. We expect that engaging people from culturally diverse communities will create exciting arts activity that leads to higher levels of engagement with musicians and audiences.

Promoting a policy of cultural diversity, arises out of recognising jazz’s black music heritage, a music created out of oppression.
