Stroud Country Show, a celebration of the achievements, skills, crafts and artistic and musical talent in the Stroud Valleys, has been postponed until 2022.

The committee are giving residents the opportunity to showcase their gardening, crafting, designs and performances on Stroud Show’s website and Facebook page.

“We have much to celebrate and so much beautiful countryside to be proud of and we certainly do need to have some fun after Lockdowns," said the show’s committee chair Wendy Fabbro.

"But having thought very long and hard about how we could organise a show this year, the Stroud Country Show team still feel very uncertain that we could offer an experience that was socially distanced and safe for all.

“We have thought about whether we could do things differently, but then would it still be the Stroud Show we all love, or become an exhibition? So with some sadness we are announcing another postponement until 2022.”

Contributors to the Stroud Show website will be in with a chance of winning a Stroud Show certificate.
