2018 dates

Stroud Folk Weekend is an event consisting mainly of pub sessions, singarounds of predominantly traditional music and Morris dancing in the streets.
We do not hire performers.
SFW is more about people getting together and making music, singing songs and dancing rather than on formal concerts.
We do act as an umbrella for other activities taking place during our weekend that are organized by others.
The Stroud Subscription Rooms and Lansdown Hall have held concerts in conjunction with our weekend and some of the pubs and Cafes such as The Ale House and Cafe Meme have done so as well. Ruskin College and SVA have put on gigs during our week-end that we like too.
Performers seeking paid gigs should contact those venues directly.
