Local businesses support Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival 2018

Upwards of 20,000 music lovers are expected in Colne from 24-26 August to enjoy The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival 2018, thanks to the excellent work of the organisers, Colne Town Council and support from local businesses

Headliners this year include King King (winners of both Band of the Year and Album of the Year at the recent UK Blues Awards), My Baby, Laurence Jones, Kyla Brox, Simon McBride and Connie Lush.

Commented Joe Cooney, Chairman of the Blues Working Group for Colne Town Council: “The beautiful town of Colne is an ideal location for an event of this kind, with one long ‘main’ street, which is closed to traffic during the Saturday and Sunday of the event. The main street will host a Festival market, on-street entertainment, a pop-up DJ booth, official busker gazebos, incredible food stalls, real ale bars and more.

“Each music venue is within easy reach of the main street, making this event not only Europe’s best contemporary blues Festival, but also a one-of-a-kind and much-loved Festival for people of the local area.

“The Festival organisers would like to thank their partners and festival supporters, who help to ensure the festival is a success year after year: Colne Town CouncilBarnfield Construction LimitedHoward RiggCarlo’s Italian RestaurantWorsthorne Brewing CompanyThe Burnley Bus CompanyVAMOOZ and Jessica Foxley Unsigned.”
