We are gearing up for the 2017 Stroud Wassail. It will once again involve the Mummers Festival, morris dancing, wassailing and mid-winter jollity.
The programme is still under construction. There will be dancing and mumming on the Saturday morning and a Huge Stroud Wassail at Lunchtime. A smaller wassail at the museum in the afternoon, and evening Revels.
Put it in your diary and look out for announcements.

Stroud Wassail 2016 was a great success. The organisers would like to express a HUGE Thank You to all who came- the Dancers, the Mummers, the Wassailers, the helpers, the people who came to watch, the kids who made costumes, the 12th Night Revelers. You all played your part.
Please send us photos or links.
We would like to find out what you thought about it.
Please let us know, what you liked, what we could do better, and your ideas for next year.
This year the Wassail will also include the International Mummers Festival.
The award winning mummers festival is an extraordinary event previously held in Gloucester and Bath. Featuring workshops, symposium and lots of Mumming, bringing participants from across the UK. Previous guest mummers have come from USA, Canada, Ireland and Spain.
