We hold a season of six Winter Concerts in the Lecture Theatre at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School Sixth Form Centre, York Street, Clitheroe. The Lecture Theatre seats are tiered so everybody has a clear view of the players. Directions to the Centre may be found on the venue page. The Centre has disabled access and toilet facilities and there is free car parking in the school yard. A printed programme is available at every concert; performers are also encouraged to introduce the pieces they are going to play. Members of the audience are invited to enjoy refreshments and the chance to chat to friends during the interval. There are no reserved seats; the intimate nature of the venue makes this unnecessary. However, because the seats are tiered, able-bodied patrons are requested to leave the front row free for any who may have difficulty climbing steps.
In addition to the series of six Winter Concerts, we hold a Summer Concert in the Ribble Valley Council Chamber. This is situated on Church Street, Clitheroe. On the map on the venue page, the Council Chamber is below St Mary’s Parish Church and opposite Clitheroe Library.
