This Summer, Stroud Town and Five Valley’s Youth Forum Group is holding a youth music event; Now That’s What I Call Stroud!
Held at the Subscription Rooms in the centre of Stroud on Friday the 13th of July, the night will feature live performances from six local youth bands; Bones Like That, Rotorua, Drifted, Placenation, Danger Noodle, and The Official Unprecedented.
The under 18’s event is open to all young people between the ages of 13 and 17 across the Stroud District, and with live music from 6pm – 10pm promises to be a fun fuelled night of great entertainment. During the evening there will be the opportunity to purchase soft drinks from the Sub Rooms bar, and to purchase merchandise from some of the bands playing.
The concept for this event came about through several Youth Forum Group meetings, where members were concerned about the future of the Sub Rooms, and about the lack of things for young people to do in and around Stroud. This event gives young people the opportunity to take part in an event tailored to them in their local town, as well as showcasing the Sub Rooms as an accessible venue for young people, and giving Stroud District youth the opportunity to support their local heritage.
Tickets will go on sale at £5.50 each and will be available to order from the Sub Rooms Box Office. After costs of running the event have been covered, 15% of any remaining ticket sales will be donated to a local Stroud based charity of the Youth Forum Group’s choice.
