Trout ‘n About 2018 will be on Sunday 5 August 2018!

The 2017 festival was a success owing to the number of emails I received from stallholders – the weather was sunny (a lucky break in the recent downpours!), and the thousands of visitors to Stockbridge all made a brilliant day – not forgetting the many wonderful stands.

Applications for 2018 will open in mid February – any interested in applying for a stand in 2018 should email to register their interest so I can add their names to the email I will be sending out with details of how to apply. We will give, as always, preference to those who produce local, artisan food and crafts.

Any queries or for more information please contact Sarah Madden on 01264 811569 or email

Trout ‘n About is itself a Not-for-Profit organisation, manned by volunteers from the village and any excess money is donated to local charitable groups selected by the volunteers after the festival.

Thank you for all the emails we received after the day:


We just want to say a HUGE BIG thank you for all your organisation in making Trout and About 2017 one of the best ever!  It was amazingly busy and we enjoyed every minute of the day!

I know that a lot of this is down to your amazing organisation and we are looking forward to next year!! Thanks to you and everyone involved!

Romsey Cancer Care & Jane Scarth House

Thank you very much to you and the team at Trout n’ About for organising another splendid street festival this year. The weather could not have been better and I think that the numbers of visitors were higher than last year too. It was a great opportunity for us to meet local people around Stockbridge and make sure that they are aware of the charity and of our free services, should they or their families need us in the future. We really enjoy being a part of this special day and we will certainly try and be there again with you next year.

Coffee Lab

I am so sorry I didn’t back to you before the event, it proved to be just too late in the day to organise it for ourselves to partake in it. However I did go to the event and it seemed to be a raging success! I particular loved the new kids area! this was a huge improvement. 

Hampshire Police

I really did enjoy yesterday, everyone seemed to be in high spirits and no problems from our side. I must also say that the volunteers doing the traffic control in the afternoon were faultless, we were there until approx. 4:30 but everything seemed to be managed absolutely perfectly and therefore we were able to leave and finish on time. Well done to the whole team, very successful day.

North Cottage Crafts

Just wish to say thank you, we had a lovely day, friendly helpful people, a joy to be part of it. Thank you for all your hard work it was appreciated.

If possible we would love to be part of it next year…..?
