areas around Rossendale were used in the filming of the BBC TV series Survivors (2008 TV Series) including the Airtours site and other sites in Helmshore and Bank Street in Rawtenstall. In 2012 Rossendale featured on the ITV reality television series "May The Best House Win" featuring former Rossendale Radio DJ Si Carvell. Local radio station Rossendale Radio broadcast throughout the valley from 2010, before shutting down on 5 March 2012 due to financial difficulties. The area has a sizeable ski slope, appropriately named Ski Rossendale, which attracts many visitors. The slope has spawned and aided the Brass brothers, Steve Bailey, Chris Moran, Danny Wheeler; and more recently Johnny Greenwood, Colum Mytton and Molly Percival (née Boys) to fame in the snowboarding world.

He took a group of men and moulded them into one of the country's finest male voice choirs, winning countless festivals, including the international Eisteddfod in Llangollen on four occasions. The choir has been fortunate in enjoying the services of several conductors, some of whom have remained for many years.
