Save the Dates!
The Jazz & Blues Festival will be on the weekend of 1st, 2nd and 3rd of May 2020.
Usually this is a Bank Holiday weekend but due to the VE day celebrations the Bank Holiday will now be on the Friday 8th May. (It confused us for a while too!) There will be a variety of services and events in and around Clitheroe to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE day so we decided to have the festival on the first weekend to avoid any clashes.
So instead of fives days we will have to condense the festival into 3! It's going to be a challenge but we have lots of great ideas and a host of acts we'd like to book. Keep an eye out for advanced notice via our festival website or sign up to our newsletter and receive discounts on early-bird tickets.
