“A classic combination of music, lovely food and drink, family and arts activities in a stunning location. It’s good value, and regulars applaud its non-commercial feel.”

Faves from last year, The Travelling Band, will be releasing their fourth studio album later this year. The Manchester five-piece are well loved in East Lancashire and we are excited about seeing them play at the fabulous Grand venue, Clitheroe, on Friday, May 20.


Cloudspotting has partnered up with the Ribble Valley Jazz Festival and is proud to sponsor this Saturday night Bank Holiday humdinger at Clitheroe’s Catholic Centre featuring one of the UK’s best live bands the Hackney Colliery Band.
