Ream Hills Holiday Park
Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival 24 Aug 2018 - 26 Aug 2018
Aug 15, 2018
The festival takes place in numerous town centre venues (from 750 to 50 capacity), Colne & Nelson Rugby Club, plus many more restaurants and bars. This beautiful town is an ideal location for an event of this kind, with one long 'main' street (closed to traffic) which hosts on-street entertainment, busking, incredible food stalls, bars and more. Each music venue is within easy reach of the main street, making this event not only Europe's best contemporary blues festival, but also one-of-a-kind and much-loved festival for people of the local area.
