Local businesses in tune with their support for Colne based Blues Festival

The Great British Rhythm & Blue Festival takes place at a variety of venues in Colne from 25-27 August 2017. The event, which has been voted the ‘best Blues Festival in Europe’ in the past, has new organisers and is led by Colne Town Council

However, to be successful, every Festival needs sponsors and Colne Town Council is delighted to announce that Barnfield Construction Ltd and Roaming Roosters are its Main Partners, with Associate Partners, The Burnley Bus Company (part of the Transdev Group), Community Rail Lancashire and H Riggs Properties

Barnfield Construction’s Chairman and Managing Director Tim Webber said: “We have supported this Festival for many years and are delighted that Colne Town Council has been brave enough to take the Festival in a new and contemporary direction, rather than see it end. We are pleased that we are able to continue our support, and as a resident of Colne myself, know what it means to Colners to have Colne well and truly on the map as the Blues place to visit. We wish the Town Council every success and know that Colne will turn out in force, to support this great weekend.”

Added Councillor Joe Cooney, Chairman of the Blues Working Group: “The support of Barnfield Construction as a Main Partner is very much welcomed as we move into the final stages of preparation for the event itself. This is a significant financial commitment by the Town Council and having the support of Barnfield Construction helps us with our overall ambitions to make this year’s Festival a great success”.

This year’s Festival is running from Friday evening 25 August through to Sunday 27 August, featuring over 100 acts, 150 gigs, 3 main venues and 9 official roadhouses offering an amazing array of Blues offers.

Over the three evenings, the Muni features headline acts of Joanne Shaw Taylor and Janiva Magness, whilst the Hippodrome headlines Ian Siegal, Aynsley Lister and Lucky Peterson. All of these artist in their own right, tour and sell out their own shows, so having them feature as part of evenings with amazing other artists as well, offers incredibly good value for each ticketed venue at prices that make it accessible to share in this great experience. Add to this a daytime offer as well, that also includes the Tom Attah’s Acoustic Blues Showcase at the Little Theatre on Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and the whole weekend offers something really special.
