Stroud Social to take place this week!

11 October 2021

 Set to take place this weekend (the 16th/17th of October) on the temporarily pedestrianised King Street, the Stroud Social is a brand new event which promises a jam-packed line up of live entertainment, street food and much more!


A cookery theatre will be hosting live demonstrations from various local chefs between 11am -4pm on Saturday and 12am -3pm on Sunday. With local, independent hospitality owners such as “Non Solo pasta”, “Oh Crepe”, “Thai2Go” and “Fat Toni’s” giving complementary tasters of their bestselling dishes!

Visitors can enjoy live music from The Jazz-Friday Big Band, D’Artagnan Arbuah and the Stanley Strummers on Saturday, with the Stroud College Band and Cheltenham’s own Dan Lewis taking to the Stage on Sunday.

A large communal seating area will also be provided so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!

The Stroud Social will also feature a Kiddie Corner complete with board games and a colouring competition with the chance to win a ‘mini mornings experience for 4’ at VUE cinema!


Stroud’s live arts and entertainment venue, the Sub Rooms, will also be hosting a range of live performances across the weekend from Henge, The Fairport convention and Shlomo’s Beatbox adventures for Kids, all alongside their central market on the Forecourt.

Before the event, be sure to enter the Stroud Social competition on the Five Valleys Facebook page to win a £50 voucher to spend at the Five Valleys indoor Market. Just head over to @FiveValleysStroud and follow the listed instructions for your chance to win!

Jess Derham, Five Valleys market and Events Manager, said “We are so excited to welcome everyone to the first ever Stroud Social! It’s shaping up to be an amazing weekend in celebration of our incredible local independent businesses and community here in Stroud.”
