We would like to thank our partners and sponsors, who help to make sure the Festival is a success year after year.

For many years, The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival has enjoyed wonderful support from a number of businesses, from both near and far.

This year, and looking forward to 2018, we intend to make this festival an even more special event for partners and sponsors than ever, with a variety of ideas and activities that they can get involved in.

If your business is serious about getting involved in the biggest, longest running, most talked about, most relevant and most up to the minute Blues and Roots festival in the UK and soon-to-be Europe, please get in touch by emailing to find out how we can help each other.

Colne Town Crest
Colne Town Council
Colne Town Council was initially formed in 2008 to help boost events in the town, since then it has not only developed a full programme of events but has also taken on allotments, playgrounds bus shelters, street furniture and is now operating almost like a main council. There are plans to take on further services during 2017 - 2018 and the most noticeable at the moment, is taking on delivery of the Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival, so that Colne residence and businesses do not lose this opportunity to keep Colne on the map. The operational Team may be very small, but with councillor are always up to the challenge of promoting Colne.

Jessica Foxley Music Projects is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers, set up to give public exposure to outstanding young musicians and at the same time help sustain existing music making activities by introducing fresh, young talent. Working in partnership with other organisations, various projects have been developed which benefit both individual young musicians and the host organisations by providing high calibre performance opportunities for the cream of young musicians. Jessica Foxley Unsigned is the longest running of those projects and is run in partnership with the organisers of the Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival.
