Community Projects

We welcome everyone to join in whatever your age or ability.

  • Think more young people should be playing creative music?

  • Keen for more activities for the whole community?

  • Would like to volunteer and do something enjoyable and worthwhile?

We are a small community-based charity, run entirely by volunteers. Our aim is to develop and promote the best in live jazz, and particularly to foster aspiring young talent. We arrange regular live jazz gigs and festivals involving leading UK jazz musicians at first-class venues mainly in Clitheroe, the heart of Ribble Valley. But we also encourage up-and-coming talent, especially among younger players by providing opportunities for playing in public and organising coaching and workshops by professional trainers and musicians.

So, if you love live music, and especially jazz and blues, please become a friend, supporter and member of Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues.
