HEADLINE SPONSOR FOR OUR 2021 FESTIVAL IS SECURED
Colne Town Council (organisers and managers of the event since 2017) is delighted to announce continued financial support from the festsival’s main sponsor Barnfield Construction Ltd.
Tim Webber Chairman and Managing Director of Barnfield Construction Ltd, long term financial supporters of the Festival commented, “since Colne Town Council took over running of the Colne Blues Festival in 2017 we have seen the festival grow into an international event. Bringing back the main road closure and an increase in roadhouse venues has created an even more vibrant atmosphere for the festival throughout the Town. With the 2019 Festival winning the UK Blues Based Festival of the Year, it is attracting more award – winning acts, more international artists and promises a weekend packed full of activity for all to enjoy. The plans for 2021 are shaping up to be a great event for local people of Colne and those who visit just for the festival. We are pleased to be able to continue to support the Festival and I know all attending will enjoy a weekend with some of the best blues music in the world.”
Councillor Mary Thomas, Chairman of the Blues Working Group said “It’s through the generous support from Barnfield Construction as our main sponsor that the festival can continue to grow and thrive in Colne. This level of support enables Colne Town Council to organise and plan what is truly one of the largest blues festivals in Europe. The 2019 Festival was the best one that Colne Town Council has organised and we are hoping to go from strength to strength with this, and many other events.”
The 2021 festival is running from Friday evening 27th August 2021 through to the end of Sunday 29th August at the main venues, featuring over 160 acts on 22 stages.
