Colne Town Council looks after our beautiful town…
Colne is a vibrant and handsome market town in north-east Lancashire surrounded by a glorious upland landscape, including the famous Pendle Hill. Its unspoiled countryside can be easily explored on foot or by bicycle, and we are close to many of Pendle’s loveliest villages – such as Wycollar, Trawden and Blacko. Boulsworth Hill, to the North of the Colne, is also part of Pendle’s Three Peaks Trails, while the Pendle Way and Bronte Way pass through the area.
Colne has a thriving retail sector, with many quirky independent shops and restaurants. The Muni, Hippodrome and Little Theatre provide fabulous cultural enrichment to the town, which also hosts the Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival each August. This is one part of a very busy event schedule run by Colne Town Council.
An update following last night’s public meeting…
It has been reported that the Blues festival has been axed. This is incorrect. The decision made at the Council Meeting this week was to discontinue holding a Blues Festival in its current form. It was also resolved to hold a revamped and revised festival at the August Bank Holiday weekend 2022.
It is with great regret that we announce the end, as we know it, of the legendary Great British Rhythm &
Blues Festival in Colne, Lancashire.
