Regent Arcade

Summer Fun For All The Family crack

If you want to combine shopping with treating the children to a fun workshop, then Regent Arcade is the place to go every Friday during August.

With 60 shops to choose from and six food and beverage outlets, you can shop till you drop and then relax over a cup of coffee checking your emails and Facebook by linking up to the centre’s free wi-fi network.

Cheltenham’s leading retail destination has joined forces with Cheltenham Borough Council, Beechwood and the Brewery to offer locals and visitors a Sparkling Summer. A whole series of events have been planned taking place all over Cheltenham, and Regent Arcade is laying on Fun Friday workshops for children throughout August.

A special Sparkling Summer promotional leaflet has been produced which is available at the Tourist Information Centre and throughout Cheltenham.

Said John Forward, centre manager of the Regent Arcade: “Cheltenham has so much to offer as a destination and it makes sense for town centre retailers to join forces with Cheltenham Borough council and really publicise summer events. The Sparkling Summer leaflet is a great way to promote our town providing an at-a-glance guide to what’s on for tourists and locals alike.”

All workshops are from 11.00am to 4.00pm. Materials are provided free – just turn up and enjoy!
