The Stroud Folk Weekend returns for a 6th year this time taking place from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd September 2018 at Stroud Subscription Rooms, in Stroud, Gloucestershire.
Stroud Folk Weekend is an event consisting mainly of pub sessions, singarounds of predominantly traditional music and Morris dancing in the streets, and doesn't hire performers. SFW is more about people getting together and making music, singing songs and dancing rather than on formal concerts. There are also usually some paid concerts in conjunction with the weekend.
No acts have been announced for 2018 yet.
Most events at Stroud Folk Weekend are free to attend. Please give generously when you see the collection buckets. There are some ticketed events in the programme. Tickets for these can be obtained at the venue.
This event does not have camping but there are a number of hotels, hostels and guest houses in the area.
The festival atmosphere takes place in local bars and cafes with folk club sessions and live music, Morris Sides on the forecourt, dance workshops around town, talks, ceilidhs and more.
There will be venues, more acts, a dance programme, morris, sessions and more.
More information will be here when available.
