Friday 1 August - Saturday 2 August
|Ale & Cider Festival|
Mr Twitchett is delighted to present the first Twitchett’s Ale and Cider Fest. Join us for two days of good beer, great music and proper summer weather (subject to availability!) Festivities begin Friday evening and continue all day Saturday.
We’re over the moon to announce some of the best in local and national folk acts for the 2014 Stroud Folk Festival. Following a ceilidh on Friday night, alongside Jim Moray and “Horizon” BBC Folk Award and Spiral Awards nominees Lady Maisery on Saturday, there will be the very splendid Heg and the Wolf Chorus, this year’s Bristol Folk Festival Isambard Award winner, Chris Cleverley, a bit of folk roots from The Willows, last year’s Five Valley Folk Award winners, The Black Feathers and, opening Saturday’s proceedings, local stars Folklaw. The Five Valleys Folk Award competition will be held again this year for the final warm up spot for the soon-to-be-announced headline act. Lots of great bands have come forward to request consideration for this year’s festival. If you’d like to enter the Five Valleys competition for the final slot, we would love to hear from you. Tickets available from the Subscription Rooms now. More details on events, workshops and performances coming soon.
The café bar is open daily from 10am for teas, coffees, bacon sandwiches,
light lunches and snacks, also beers and wines from the local area and
beyond. Free wifi is available and the 42” TV shows major live sporting
events. There is a monthly New Theatre session on a Friday night and regular live music from local acoustic and electronic artists. The bar is open before and after all performances and late every Friday and Saturday.
Mr Twitchett’s Coffee House and Bar is named after Harry Twitchett, a
caretaker at the Subscription Rooms who came to Stroud from Shoreditch
with his family in 1889. After 20 years’ service, Harry died tragically in the
Sub Rooms and was buried in the Old Cemetery in the town.
