We are one of the few venues in the Cotswolds who offer live jazz on a regular basis. Bob puts together a varied programme, with Trad on most Tuesday evenings and Modern to Mainstream on most Sunday nights during the summer and autumn months. We also feature many Big Band concerts on Sunday afternoons during the summer. These take place in the marquee in the garden with the musicians playing out to a large garden audience.
We hold regular quiz night on the first Friday of every month during Autumn, Winter and early Spring. These are often charity events, supporting both local and national causes.
Theatre @ The Trout is our programme of drama presented in the Marquee Theatre behind the Creel Bar. It allows our audience to experience everything from comedy nights to full length plays in an intimate atmosphere with great food and drink available.
The last week end in May, normally sees a gathering of historic river craft, coracles, kayaks and various interesting boats, who meet here for a weekend of messing about on the river.
This is followed on the first weekend of June with the “World Famous Tractor and Steam Rally” which is a casual event for anything old which goes. The magic of steam never ceases to impress, and all the enthusiasts who come to the show are most accommodating to visitors' questions about their engines, tractors and other old things.
Also during June we have “Troutfest”, our annual beer and music day which has been running for 7 years and goes from strength to strength.
In July, we host “Riverfolk” festival, which is a 2 day folk event arranged for us by Jay and her team who run a bi monthly folk club in our Creel bar.
In September the Lechlade Gardening Society hold their flower and produce show in marquees in the garden and this always has a fabulous 'country show feel' Tea and home made cakes are served during the afternoon.
Further details of all our events can be found on our listings page which is regularly updated.
Our March quiz will be in aid of the Lechlade Lions
