Stroud Festival - about us!

Stroud Festival is one of the oldest festival organisations in the country, bringing the best of art, music, poetry and drama to Stroud and the Five Valleys since 1946. Once enjoying an international reputation, Stroud Festival sponsored a Poetry Competition in the 1960s and 70s which drew more than 900 entries from over 35 different countries.

In more recent years the company has distributed funds on behalf of the Margaret and Netlam Bigg Trust – local patrons of the arts whose legacy was a bequest to promote education in the arts within the District of Stroud.

As well as holding its own annual celebration of the arts every autumn, the charity is proud to back, amongst others:

Stroud Festival of Nature           Stroud Symphony

Stroud Choral Society                  Stroud Light Music Choir

Stroud Festival Ltd provides practical support too - such as promoting the  Cotswold Playhouse.

We also sponsor youth groups such as:

Mould Young Filmmakers’ Showcase
