Festival Cancellation!

Date: 19 March | Category: News

Sadly, we've had to cancel this year’s Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues Festival. It is the only safe and sensible course of action to take in the light of the country’s efforts to cope with the Coronavirus epidemic.

Our overwhelming concern is the safety and well-being of all our audiences, volunteers and musicians.

The Festival Planning Group and all the musicians and venues involved appreciate your ongoing support, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Festival in 2021. We will be updating our website with news at regular intervals. If you have any further enquiries, please contact us at

We will be contacting everyone who has purchased a ticket to any of the gigs originally planned for the Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues Festival 2020 to ensure refunds can be made, or alternatively, ticket purchases can be validated for rescheduled dates.

If you have purchased tickets from The Grand's Box Office, please contact them via email ( and the Events Team there will be happy to assist you.

With many thanks and all best wishes from everyone involved.
