Cloudspotting Exhibition on now at Cltheroe’s Platform Gallery

Is your head in the cloud?

Cloudspotting Exhibition is a selection of our favourite images of 2016 which capture the energies and excitement of Cloudspotting.  Our collection highlights the beautiful location, quality music programme and engaging arts activities which enables our subjects to picture so attractively.

Cloudspotting Music and Arts Festival has produced it’s first exhibition in a proper gallery!


On display until the 15th May at The Platform Gallery in Clitheroe, and influenced by the talented friends of the festival who have been involved in our festival images, we dedicate this exhibition to all Cloudspotters who have contributed in their own way.  Featuring photographs and videos produced by local creatives Derren Lee Poole, Matthew Collinge, Kristien Cooper and Aaron Dunleavy this exhibition gives a mini-slice of our wonderful and rich festival.

Bogarts – Curious yet handsome creatures of the forest!


The exhibition includes information about this year’s festival through visual images; including Bo our Kerith Ogden commissioned Hen Harrier and our full musical line-up.    Bo features throughout Cloudspotting 2017 in the pre-festival information and at the festival.  With support from RSPB, the Birds of Bowland Project in our family activities programme explain how we can support Bo and her feathered friends in their forest environment.  As well as introducing Bo and activities for this year, the exhibition features the images of 2016 activities.  A success in 2016, Play in a Day returns to Cloudspotting 2017.  This year Jack Herbert (National Youth Theatre) will facilitate this extremely popular activity on Saturday 29 July.

“Its great to have Cloudspotting exhibition here.  The vivid display sums up what makes the music and arts festival so special”m Katherine Rodgers, Arts Development Officer, Ribble Valley Borough Council


We are all about the interactive.  Each year our music and arts programme gives plenty of opportunity for you to get involved and indulge in your hobbies or try something new.  This year we have favourites including yoga, bogarts, festival parade, cinema, music and dance workshops plus many more.  New to 2017 we have the Cloudspotting Choir where the audience become performers and the performers become the audience.  Come to the festival; join a choir, attend reheasals and perform on the main stage!
