Jump on board the Blues Train!

Tuesday, 4th August 2015


Once again we are delighted to be working in partnership with East Lancashire Community Rail Partnership (ELCRP) and Northern Rail.

For the 10th consecutive year, The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival and ELCRP will be providing The Music Train, which will leave Preston on Friday, August 28th at 6.00pm and arrive in Colne at approximately 7.15pm to kick start the festival in style!

With real ale and live music on board, what better way to get you in the mood for a weekend of Blues?

We can now confirm that the Manchester-based guitar and harmonica duo, Mat Walklate and Paolo Fuschi will be performing on board. Here's what to expect from the duo:

Northern Rail will be putting on both extra and late night train services over the Bank Holiday weekend, making sure you can get to and from the festival without having to worry about driving.
