Stroud Valleys Clocking Off Festival kicks off with the workshop 'A Great Way to Go'.

It will be run by independent celebrant Su Chard who will be discussing how to leave hopes and wishes for your funeral so that those you leave behind can create a totally special event.

The workshop runs from 7pm to 9.30pm on Tuesday, July 1 at the Star Anise Cafe in Gloucester Street.

Contact Su on 07817110158 for more details.

The launch of Clocking Off Festival campaign takes place at the Ale House in Stroud at 7.30pm tonight, Wednesday.
