Stroud Five Valleys Stamp and Postcard Fair

April 18, 2023 @ 10:00 am - April 23, 2023 @ 4:00 pm


In April 2023 the Stroud and District Philatelic Society, in conjunction with local history and postcard groups, will be holding a local stamp and postcard fair, in the newly-refurbished Three Storeys Exhibition Space (
The rationale of the event is to:
• link philately and postcard collecting with local history and interest
• make the idea of stamps, postcards and postal history as interesting as possible
• reach out into our community, including local groups and schools
• make the event as varied and interesting as possible

The week of 18th–23rd April is a Tuesday to the following Sunday. From Tuesday 18th to Friday 21st there will be a standing exhibition alongside sales and activities, the exhibition featuring famous stamps, local postal history, the relevance of stamps today, and a ‘Me and My Stamps’ display by members of the society. Then from Friday to Sunday there will be a more intensive programme of talks and hands-on presentations. On offer during the event will be:
• illustrated talks and presentations
• stamp and postcard sales with a variety of dealers
• write and stamp your own Penny Black letter
• bring your stamps and postcards for our experts to look at and value
We believe this will be a landmark event, introducing the relevance and importance of postal and postcard history to a wide audience with an interest in local history, social developments, family history and much more. We shall be making a big effort to publicise the event to as many people as possible, both collectors and the general public.
The event is being co-ordinated by Stroud and District Philatelic Society, and a more detailed programme of talks and presentations will be available nearer the time.

It will be open from 10am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday.
