Mid-Winter Revels

Although, the 2021 Wassail has been cancelled due to Covid, we’ll be making sure that Stroud Wassail 2022 continues into the evening with some medieval merry-making, and we’ll be looking for new acts to entertain the crowds for the 2022 Revels. In previous years we’ve had a comedy magician, ceilidh band, singers, storytellers, and even a psychic duck – yes really! And who can possibly forget the superb Flashcandy cancan dancers, their fantastic moves and their electric knickers!! Definitely one of the highlights of the Revels. Click here to see their performance.

If you’re an entertainer and want the opportunity to showcase your talents at the Revels, then contact us.


Echoing 12th Night Revels of the fifteenth-century Guilds and Inns of Court, the evening will be presided over by the Chancellor and the Lord/Lady of Misrule, who will oversee the election of King Bean and Queen Pea. There will be traditional festivities – the Wassail Bowl, the Boar’s Head Carol, mummers plays, song and comedy, and ceilidh dancing for all. A kind of medieval cabaret party.
