Call for content

As part of our role developing the visitor economy for Cheltenham, we curate and share relevant and useful content which encourages more visitors, or which supports their experience while in Destination. The audiences we reach are varied, from regular visitors within a 30 minute radius, through to international visitors making a dedicated trip to Cheltenham, or visiting as part of a wider Cotswold trip.

To support this content curation, we encourage local Cheltenham businesses and regional attractions to supply us with relevant and engaging content with a number of key themes. This ‘call for content’ is sent out every month via email (contact us to register your email address), and will also be listed here. This list will be updated all the time, so we recommend bookmarking the page and visiting often.

Please note, although we will endeavour to use as much of the supplied content as possible, the Marketing Cheltenham team reserve the right to edit or shorten content, combine it with other content, and publish or dismiss it at our discretion. Priority will also be given to member content. To help assure use of your information, become a member >>

For ANY / ALL of the following content opportunities, we need you to supply the following, in EACH case…

Please read through the following opportunities to promote your business (free-of-charge) and if anything fits your profile please:

  • send us a short overview of anything relevant (up to 50 words) in an editable format. This is not a business profile and must be relevant to the opportunity you are responding to
  • send us supporting content, links etc. (up to 600 words) in an editable format
  • provide up to three images from your business, to support the story, in jpeg format (if available)

…by the deadline listed, to

Ideally, your content should be interesting and inspiring and although it can include your sales messages should not be a hard sell. Tell us what makes your business different, why your initiative is special, why it’s not to be missed?
