STROUD BOOK FESTIVAL 2020 – Launch of full programme

Dear Friends of Stroud Book Festival,

In this, our 5th birthday year, we are thrilled to launch our online programme for 2020.

Every single one of our 24 online events has been programmed in the spirit of celebrating community, not just in Stroud and the Five Valleys, but also in the context of our wider world.  What’s more, all our events this year are free, thanks to a wonderful community-led fundraising initiative this past Summer.

In these challenging times, it is our hope that our 2020 programme will stand as a comforting, inspiring and thought-provoking response to the pandemic, upholding the value of culture in enriching our lives.  As Festival favourite Sue Limb writes, ‘in this dark emergency, in which we’ve all been so isolated and lonely, what could be more healing, more restorative than sharing our enjoyment of books and writers with our community, our beloved friends and neighbours?’

Our digital brochure will go live later this week, but for now you can see all the events on our website here.

Most of our events will be streamed on YouTube, so for the best possible Stroud Book Festival experience, please subscribe to our YouTube channel now. You can do that here.

So come on in and join us! We look forward very much to welcoming you.

With love, Stroud Book Festival
