Update On events in 2021
The Stroud Shakespeare Festival has been postponed to Summer 2022, to hopefully allow for a full recovery from COVID19.
We simply cannot function in a socially distanced way within our venue, as performance spaces are small and intimate, and our outdoor spaces are only accessible via narrow indoor corridors.
This is obviously devastating for the team, but with the amount of work that goes into the festival, we want to make sure that all involved will have a safe and accessible environment. In order to raise funds, the festival team are planning to do two short tours in February and July, as well as various fundraising efforts during 2021.
Conditions allowing, our first production will be Macbeth, rehearsing in Jan 2021 for a February tour.
Many thanks for your ongoing support,
Kate Raw and the Stroud Shakespeare Festival team
