Stroud - a Festival town for the last 70 years!

Stroud Festival 1946 – 2016, and the number of events just keeps on growing!

This year we celebrate our 70th anniversary  by acknowledging the wealth of artistic talent living in these hills and valleys.

As the ‘grandfather’ of festivals Stroud Festival likes to support this local talent by joining forces with other groups and supporting their events where we can, so this year we’re proud to be linking in with, amongst others:

Stroud Festival of Nature            Stroud Symphony

Stroud Choral Society                  Stroud Light Music Choir

and sponsoring youth groups and events such as:
Mould Young Filmmakers’ Showcase
Schools Dance Showcase with Marie-Louise Flexen

NEW for 2016 – we’re launching THE STROUD BOOK FESTIVAL

With such a wealth of local talent to draw on we've put together an exciting programme of around 40 popular authors who live in the area.  

Who knew we had that many!!

Running from Friday 11 November to Sunday 20 November 2016 the events and activities are aimed at a wide-ranging audience of book-lovers from 3 to 93....

Discussions and performances in the Subscription Rooms, childrens' workshops in the Museum, readings in the Library and pop-up events in cafes around town.

So keep checking here, the book page and follow us on Facebook to see what’s in store for you this year.
