A joyous festival during which a whole town throws open its doors and a special community comes together to create a wonderful spectacle. A festival for the incurably curious, filled with breathtaking beauty and the bewilderingly bizarre for the delight of children and the astonishment of adults.
Set over 8 stages, covering every musical genre and art, comedy, theatre and spoken word too. There's wonderful food from local producers, children's workshops and the streets come alive with street entertainment and a procession too.
Enjoy vibrant culture and musical performances, from poetry to punk, fine art to folk, comedy to chaos theory, and everything in-between, set in one of the most exciting, creative towns in the Cotswolds.
This year Stroud Fringe will also be hosting "Colourscape" a labyrinth of colour and sound, made up of interconnected pod-like rooms that are bathed in different coloured lights. Over the course of the weekend additional unusual musical performances, dance, perfume and scents will also be added into the beautiful installation - join us for this "once in a life time" extravaganza.
