Ribble Valley Jazz Festival
Over the May Day Bank Holiday Weekend, Ribble Valley celebrates its 5th Annual Jazz Festival.
Clitheroe remains the primary location for the festival but Grindleton Pavilion will be hosting a performance for the first time. The festival opens on Thursday 1st May at Grindleton Pavillion, just 3 miles outside of Clitheroe with the delectable sounds of Camerata Ritmata.
Throughout the bank holiday there will be a range of musicians performing, from local players, school bands, and famous names on the jazz circuit.
Chipping Steam Fair
24th – 26th May
The first Chipping Steam Fair was held in 1998 to support efforts to raise funds for a new Village Hall. With steam engines, classic tractors, cars and bikes on show, what was originally organised as a one-off event has now become a firm fixture in the calendar of many enthusiasts.
Held at the Chipping Show Ground on the outskirts of the Forest of Bowland the fair also features a crafts tent, children’s entertainment and live music until midnight that attracts visitors from miles around and all walks of life.
