Ribble Valley International Piano Week is organised by a committee. We have an administrator, Rebecca Weaver, whose input goes way above and beyond the call of duty! The rest of the committee are volunteers, who devote much time and effort to plan and organise the events and activities we offer. Without their commitment and cheerful willingness to devote so much of their time throughout the year (not just during the festival itself!) we simply could not operate.
Artistic Director, Martin Roscoe,
Chairman, Marianne Bailey
Administrator and First Aider, Rebecca Weaver
Committee members – Sylvia Alexander (You will find Sylvia selling programmes on the door), Harold Barnes and Paul Topping (technical support team – sound and lighting engineers), Tina Adams (Floral arrangements and Front of House), Paul Greenhalgh (Front of House and occasional pageturner), Ann Robinson (Front of House – Ann will often be found manning the ticket desk), Graham Moon (Front of House and First Aider).

We must mention our advisors to the committee, Ian Longworth (former Chairman, who continues to provide invaluable support, and along with his wife Helen provide us with a venue for our meetings) and Geoff Garnett (former Treasurer).
Ruth Turner, who many of you will have seen Front of House for many years is moving away and therefore leaving the committee – over the years Ruth has devoted many hours to the development of the RVIPW website, and has been a tireless supporter since her own schooldays.
