Stroud Subscription Rooms to temporarily close
By Matt Hall | 18th March 2019
The entertainment venue in the centre of Stroud is temporarily closing its doors as the final planning is carried out to keep the venue in public ownership.
From Wednesday, 20-28th March the Subscription Rooms booking office will temporarily move to the Stroud Town Council office in London Road. It will be open from Monday-Saturday from 10am-2pm.
The Tourist Information Centre will be closed from Saturday March 16.
The temporary closure is ahead of the official handover of the venue from Stroud District Council ownership to Stroud Town Council. It is to allow new phone and computer systems to be installed.
Stroud District Council will transfer the building to Stroud Town Council and the business and staff to the Stroud Subscription Rooms Trust.
Kevin Cranston, Stroud Town Mayor, said: "The Trust has some fantastic events planned for following the transfer and we want to ensure people book tickets and truly get behind this community venture."
Doina Cornell, leader of Stroud District Council, said: "I am pleased that the Subscription Rooms will remain in public hands. This handover period is essential to allow for the transfer to take place and help get the new operation off to a flying start."
Among the events coming up at the Sub Rooms are: Tweedy's Illusion Confusion (April 6), Treasure Island (April 10), Jan Wobble (April 13) and the powerful First World War inspired theatre production War In Mind.
