Events


Whatever time of year you visit, Ribble Valley offers a packed programme of festivals, events and cultural activities for all the family. 

If it is food that appeals, Clitheroe Food Festival provides a showcase for local food and drink producers and their fabulous products. The town is literally taken over by food, and food related events, with ample opportunity to sample and buy the very best local produce. Obsession Festival of Food and Wine, at Northcote Manor is another great food celebration where fine food and drink connoisseurs meet face to face with some of the greatest chefs in the world.Music lovers of all genres will be able to find a festival to suit their tastes. From the mirth and jollity of summer music festivals to laid back acoustic evenings in the local pubs throughout the year, you can sit back and soak up, or else get up and dance along to, all kinds of musical events. Supporting live music is a great way to experience something unique, and you may well discover a new favourite band or artist along the way.

What’s On:

Why not get out and explore the Ribble Valley and attend some of our fantastic and varied events? Whether you like walking, wildlife, birds, gardens, sport, kids’ activities or boat trips there is something for you.
