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.
The 2021 Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival in Colne, Lancashire has been cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, organisers have today confirmed.
Town Clerk, Naomi Crewe, is asking residents with views about the Pendle Borough Council draft Local Plan II to contact Pendle Borough Council, not Colne Town Council.
It is with heaviness in our hearts that we announce that after much deliberation and taking into consideration the Governments recent advice and announcement to start lifting COVID-19 restrictions, currently legislation will not allow us to hold the event. Therefore, our Easter in Colne event will no longer be able to go ahead on the 3rd April 2021 as scheduled. It is not a decision that we have taken lightly but at this stage of the restrictions being lifted, we cannot host the event.
