Tickets on sale this Friday! Time to plan your Festival…


Dear Festival Friends,

We’re delighted to say that our full Stroud Book Festival 2023 programme of more than 30 events is now available to browse on our website –

As well as bringing high profile authors including Tom Kerridge, Cressida Cowell, Clive Myrie, Adam Kay, Nina Stibbe and Children’s Laureate Joseph Coelho to Stroud, our programme also boasts a host of locally-sourced writers. We have events for adults, and children of all ages, and others we think are perfect for everyone!

Tickets will go on general public sale via Stroud Sub Rooms box office from 9am on Friday 8 September (Sub Rooms VIPs and Members will be able to buy a day or two prior to that).

You can buy tickets online from the Sub Rooms website. You can also purchase by calling 01453 796880, or in-person at the box office in Stroud (Tuesday–Saturday, 9–4pm).

Our colourful printed brochure with full details of all events taking place from 8–12 November will be available to pick up free from Stroud Bookshop and from venues across the Five Valleys in the next couple of weeks.

We look forward to seeing you at the Festival!
