Join us for football and fun at Stroud CLP’s Summer Fundraiser – money raised to go towards our general election fighting fund

The event takes place at the Chantry Centre in Long Street, Dursley GL11 4JB, from 2pm to 7pm.

Before the World Cup final kicks off on the big screen at 4pm, we are lucky to be joined by Marxist magician, Ian Saville, who will entertain us with a funny, thought-provoking and topical celebration of socialism. He will also attempt (again) to make capitalism disappear. His show will start at 2.30pm. He’ll do a second show, for children, at a time TBC. We also have storyteller Bill Church for our younger guests.

Our half time entertainment will be provided by singer Robb Johnson, who wrote the JC4PM For Me single and, recently, performed at the LabourLive event in London. He’ll also perform short sets before and after the football.

There will be a bar open all day, serving a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks (including made-to-order cocktails and mocktails), a bookstall run by the Yellow Lighted Bookshop, a Golden Goal competition and a top selection of raffle and auction prizes, including:

  • tea in Parliament with Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell
  • a Jeremy Corbyn poster, signed by Jeremy Corbyn
  • a family ticket for four at Forest Green Rovers FC
  • a scorecard from Joe Root’s first match as England cricket captain, signed by Joe Root (England v South Africa at Lords in July 2017)

If you would like to bid for any these prizes, we are running a silent auction, so please email your bid to, stating which item you would like, and how much you would like to bid. The leading bids will be revealed after the World Cup Final, giving people a chance to bid in person at the event.

We also have a range of excellent raffle prices, including:

  • a signed copy of Owen Jones’s The Establishment
  • a signed copy of Alex Nunns’s The Candidate
  • a football signed by Forest Green Rovers FC players
  • plus more to be announced.

The event takes place at the Chantry Centre in Long Street, Dursley GL11 4JB, from 2pm to 7pm. Tickets available here ticket source whats-on . Any queries, please call 07810 641 459.
