On September 18th, Ian Ford (Trophy Officer) represented the GBBA at a meeting in Stroud, where the future of the Subscription rooms was discussed.
The proposal can be viewed on the Stroud Town Council website.
The Stroud Subscription Rooms will be a first class venue for a concert. Although as the proposal currently stands, there will not be enough assembly rooms for it to be a contest venue. Apart from the auditorium, changing rooms, and bar/café, there is one large room that can hold a maximum of 50 people. There are some mock up photographs of what the proposals will look like in reality; view them here.
The outcomes of the evening can be downloaded here, and there is expected to be a follow up meeting some time soon.
