Cheltenham Culture Board

Cheltenham is really proud of its reputation as a thriving centre for culture, heritage and sporting events, hosting some amazing festivals that celebrate literature, art, music, sport and science.

But we feel we can do more – and use culture and creativity as a tool to help the local economy, attract visitors, engage young people and reach out to communities.

A range of partners have come together to form a culture board for Cheltenham. We have produced a draft strategy that includes a vision about how Cheltenham can really shift gear in our approach to developing and deepening our cultural offer. Bringing arts, digital and heritage innovation together will support creative and inclusive communities where everyone has the chance to thrive.


Whether you are culturally active or not, we would really welcome your views about culture in Cheltenham.
