Keep Stroud Subscription Rooms as a Performance Space

This petition had 134 supporters

Stroud Subscription Rooms is up for sale and that may result in the loss of the only substantial non-seated performance space in Stroud.   Currently, Stroud Subscription Rooms offers a venue for bands and other performances with a space to dance. The Ballroom in the Sub rooms has a 450 person capacity, twice that of Lansdown Hall. It's not clear if this facility will be retained once the building is sold. In an email reply from Stroud District Council, it was stated that: 'a sub group looking at the bids has made a recommendation, however the Strategy and Resources Committee of the Council has yet to decide and is under no obligation to accept the recommendation.'  It has been announced that Ecotricity is the preferred buyer but they have yet to reply to an email enquiry on the use of the building.  This means that the venue could be lost.  It's too late to stop the sale but not too late to secure the future of the Sub Rooms as a venue.  Please sign this petition to support the campaign to keep Stroud Subscription Rooms as the only substantial performance space in Stroud. Thank you.
