Stroud's Artistic Tradition

"..the Covent Garden of the Cotswolds..;" this is how designer Jasper Conran has described Stroud.

One needs only to wander around the town to stumble on Galleries at The Subscription rooms, Mills Cafe in Withey's Yard, and SVA in John St to name but a few. Information can be found at the Tourist Information Office.

Lansdown Hall and Gallery invites Stroud's community to participate in performing arts workshops, and the town hosts too many craft shops to mention.

From January 2016, this website is managed by Stroud Local History Society
