Rick Vick – Memorial

31 January 2020
2:00 pm
- 6:00 pm

To many people – artists, writers, musicians, performers of all kinds, venue folk, anyone connected with Stroud’s arts scene – Rick was synonymous with Stroud Festival.  Our ‘Man at Large’ for more than a decade Rick sought out acts to promote and projects to support, gave newcomers and emerging artists a helping hand and brought established names to a fresh audience. Rick sadly passed away on 30.11.2019 and will be greatly missed by all those whose life he touched.  For highlights of some of Rick’s achievements as Stroud Festival Organiser visit the tribute page.

A memorial service will take place on Friday 31 January 2020 at the Brunel Goods Shed, Stroud.  Doors open at 2pm for a service at 2.30pm honouring Rick’s passing, followed by a gathering to celebrate his extraordinary life.  The Bar will be open for drinks, teas and coffees and a buffet of savouries and cakes will be provided by family and friends.

All who knew Rick are welcome to attend.

A Remembrance Book has been in various locations around Stroud for the past month so that friends can record thoughts, memories and stories about Rick for his family to keep.  The Book is currently in the John St Kitchen at SVA and will move to The Goods Shed on the day of the memorial.
