All the Jazz Club Gigs

Ribble Valley Gin & Tonic fundraiser

Gin, Whisky & Jazz Festival Fundraiser

Saturday 30 March 2019 From 7:00pm to 11:00pm
Venue: Clitheroe Rugby Club, Littlemoor Rd, Clitheroe BB7 1EW Tel: 01200 422261 | Web: www.clitheroerugby.com | Tickets: £20 with tasting / £15 non-taster | Book Now: from the Facebook website

Help us raise funds to support the festival's free community events.


Unfortunately some of our major funders aren't able to be so generous this year. For instance, with worries over recruitment, Uclan have had to cut back. Sad, so instead we're going to have a great night with a gin and whisky tasting and uplifting party music provided by the Blufunk Syndicate. There's going to be lots of fun and an amazing raffle with really, really great prizes!

What a great way to celebrate our first full Brexit day or drown your sorrows and, at last, forget about all the mayhem we've been through!

Tickets are £20 and you'll see this going towards hiring sound systems, putting up stages and subsidising events and workshops for children and our community.

And if you feel you would like to do more... then please come and talk to us as in our 10th year we really do need your help.
