The Ribble Valley Jazz Festival is Sponsored and Supported by: Clitheroe Town Council Ribble Valley Borough Council - Our 2018 Festival Patron Mike Thomas I am pleased to be invited to be Ribble Valley Jazz Festival's Patron for the 9th Annual Ribble Valley Jazz Festival. This brochure shows you that festival organisers have planned another rich 5 day festival programme, re-branded this year as an international festival. Headline musicians from Norway and Italy will perform alongside award winning UK artists who have significant international experience. The festival has an exciting and diverse programme introducing over 450 musicians at 60 ticketed and free gigs all taking place in high quality indoor and outdoor venues in Clitheroe and local villages. I am equally pleased that Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues, and my university, the University of Central Lancashire, are working together to present Preston Jazz and Improvisation Festival from Wednesday 6th to Sunday 10th June. It is an achievement for both organisations to be working together so that you and your friends can experience high quality artistic and culturally diverse talent. I am sure you will enjoy the experience that our two organisations are presenting!
