Raising your Profile

Find out more at If we don’t seem to be sharing your content, please drop us a message so we know to follow you. is the official resource for events, activities, itineraries and business across the Stroud District.  It showcases some of the very best the Stroud District has to offer, with an audience that consists both of those visiting from afar and our local communities too.  A monthly eNewsletter helps deliver upcoming highlights to the inboxes of the subscribers with a retention rate of well over 95%. The website alone can attract in excess of 500 unique, active visitors a day.

Totally Locally Stroud District, Fiver Fest and Magic Tenner

The Chamber administers Stroud District Fiver Fest and Magic Tenner.  FiverFest enables independent businesses in town with the opportunity to offer their customers something (or a combination of things) that would usually be a little more than £5 for just “a fiver”. Because if every adult in Stroud spent just £5 per week in an independent businesses, it would add £4.5m into our local economy – that makes our town a better place to live and visit, as it means more jobs, better facilities and a bolstered local community too.   

Following similar principles, we have run Bee Stroud District across Stroud, Stonehouse, Dursley, Wotton-under-Edge and Nailsworth. These exciting events both engage and educate, whilst helping our communities discover new businesses in our towns.
