Jazz Festival May 3rd to May 6th 2013

Valley Gigs teamed up with the Jazz Festival Committee to extend the range of music and appeal of the Ribble Valley’s 3rd Jazz Festival. Our main aim was to showcase local talent of which there is an abundance in and around the Ribble Valley. With Castle Street closed and a fair wind our programme started at 11.am on the Saturday and ran through until late afternoon. A large audience enjoyed local bands and choirs, finishing off with the ever popular Blowjangles. As usual they had the entire audience dancing and playing instruments. A great day on the street.

 

Earlier in the morning we ran three ukulele workshops: one for children and two for adults. There was a lot of good feedback from the workshops. We’re even thinking of forming a ukulele group here in the Valley. Thanks to all our volunteers who acted as marshals and to the Ribble Valley Borough Council and to Clitheroe Town Council for help with funding.
