After much anticipation The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival in Colne, Lancashire is once again returning this August Bank Holiday weekend! Tickets are now on sale on the festival website, via this link: and are selling fast so don’t delay in securing yours.

Having been cancelled in previous years due to the pandemic, the long-awaited festival returns to Colne bigger than ever with over 50 acts performing across 3 days. Running from Friday 26th August to Sunday 28th August the festival will offer a fantastic range of live music across the 2 main stages (Colne Muni & Pendle Hippodrome) as well as across the fringe venues throughout the town. For 2022, the fringe venues are being programmed by Colne Blues Society which is a small charitable trust whose members are fiercely passionate about the local music scene and securing the longevity of the festival.

In addition to the fabulous live music offerings there will also be funfair rides and various food outlets as well as an array of street entertainment, acts and performers, so there really will be something for everyone to enjoy!

Colne Town Council’s Events Officer, Mr. Nathan Cutler, said, “The Blues Festival is a part of Colne, it puts the town on the map and we cannot wait to welcome people from around the world back to Colne for the festival. Tickets are selling fast so don’t miss out and get yours now!”

The iconic festival isn’t just a huge event within Colne Town Council’s event schedule but also a major event in the UK Blues Festival calendar – and this year should be legendary! We hope to see you there.
