Styx of Stroud’s practice season is now underway, and we meet every Thursday night from 7.30 to 9.30 – we vary between the Wesley Rooms in Parliament Street, Stroud (GL5 1QH), and other venues in Stroud – please contact us if you want to come on a particular evening, whether as a dancer or a musician, just to be sure. If you are interested in coming along, Go on, give it a go – you know you want to.
We do have some dance-outs over the winter months, though, especially Stroud Wassail and the odd folk gathering; and are still available for bookings, so please keep checking back to see what we’re getting up to.
