A Message from Ribcaged...

Welcome to RIBFEST 2016!


On behalf of Ribcaged Productions, it gives me enormous pleasure

to launch what I hope will be the first of many successful annual events, celebrating music and performing arts in the beautiful Ribble Valley village of Ribchester.


The programme for the festival is now set and we hope that you will find there is something for everyone to enjoy, including music concerts (blues, jazz, folk rock, swing, pop and classical), theatre (from Ribcaged and RATS), storytelling and a host of other interesting events.


Ribchester is a special place known for its generosity,  warmth and community spirit.  RIBFEST celebrates and acknowledge this with a week-long exciting and fun music and art festival, which people will love. Our aim is to showcase the best local and Lancashire talent in a wonderful rural setting.

Volunteers Needed! 

We will bring different generations, organisations and communities in Ribchester together, to share in the enjoyment of music and arts and to inspire young people to become active citizens in their community.  Young people will be recruited and encouraged as active participants to help run RIBFEST – they will learn from experienced volunteers and performers, they will actively promote events and have opportunities to perform within the festival.
