Non members are welcome at all our concerts.
However, should you wish to come to four or more during the season,
please be aware that it would be cheaper to become a member.
At all our concerts we give Free Admission to children (accompanied by a paying adult if under 16)
and to full time students, provided that seats are available.
To see details of forthcoming concerts hover your mouse over the ‘Concerts’ tab above and then over the current season; either click on the season to see a summary of the concerts (with a link to each)
or, move the cursor sideways and click on a concert to open its page immediately.
If the artist/group has their own website, you will find a link to it on the relevant concert page, where there are usually additional links to video or audio clips. Although previous season’s concerts are listed, clicking on the tabs for those prior to 2009-10 will only bring up a summary.
We hold a season of six Winter Concerts in the Lecture Theatre at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School Sixth Form Centre, York Street, Clitheroe. 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, with details about the artists and items to be played, is available at every concert; performers are also encouraged to introduce the pieces they are going to play. There are no reserved seats; the intimate nature of the venue makes this unnecessary; the seats are tiered so everybody has a clear view of the players. However, able-bodied patrons are requested to leave the front row free for any who may have difficulty climbing steps. Refreshments are provided in the Dining Hall at the interval; you are invited to enjoy these and the chance to chat to friends at the same time.
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. (For both members and visitors, admission to this Summer Concert is by donation on the night).
