Jazz Stroud takes place across a number of venues in the town centre. Find out more about each one below.

Brunel Goods

Brunel Goods Shed

Jazz Stroud’s flagship venue. Built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel originally to repair trains, this stone warehouse is quickly becoming recognised as one of the UK’s best sounding music spaces. We are very excited that this year the Goods Shed will be equipped with a 360° d&b audiotechnik soundscape system to create a fully immersive sonic experience.


The Imperial Hotel

Once a coaching inn and built over 200 years ago, The Imperial Hotel is located at the centre of Stroud adjacent to the Railway Station. Over the weekend it will be the home of Stroud’s longest running jazz night, the Stroud Jazz Sessions. Also a great place to crash if you can’t find your way home! Find out more here.

St Laurence’s Church

A church full of music, art and community - St Laurence’s are keen supporters of the arts and have hosting some incredible events in recent years. We are proud and grateful to be able to programme music in this beautiful space - a sanctuary and spiritual home offering a different atmosphere to the Goods Shed.

The Ale House

The finest pub in central Stroud, offering a wide and varied range of the best beers & ciders from across the country. Great traditional pub food served daily as well as live music from the afternoon through to the evenings. For the full run-down on their beer and cider selection, look here


SVA John Street
