Regent Arcade

In Search Of The Next Miss Cheltenham crack

Hosted this year by the Regent Arcade Shopping Centre, the Miss Cheltenham competition is in full swing! Last month the reigning Miss England, Jessica Linley and fellow judges visited the arcade to scout for potential entrants creating an exciting buzz throughout the centre. Jessica posed for photographs and modelled some of the new season collections from Monsoon within the Regent Arcade.

“We’re excited to be helping Miss England search for the next Miss Cheltenham,” said Jen Montgomery, from the Regent Arcade Management Team. “Beauty, girls and shopping go hand in hand – making the Regent Arcade Shopping Centre the ideal venue to host the competition. We are hoping the people of Cheltenham will help us in finding the next Miss Cheltenham.”

Visit Cheltenham’s premier shopping destination from 9th May where all the photographs of the shortlisted competitors will be showcased for 1 week allowing you to cast your vote to help whittle down the field to just 10 finalists. The photographs will also be published on the Regent Arcade Facebook page with a text to vote number next to each one.

The top ten entries will then be whittled down to just five by the Miss England judges, and the grand final will be held at the Regent Arcade at the end of May, where the next Miss Cheltenham will be crowned and put forward to represent the town in the national competition.

There’s nothing like a new outfit to make you feel like a beauty queen – and The Regent Arcade is the place to go for the latest in high street and boutique fashion.

Browse in Elvi, Monsoon, Bhs, M Butterfly, Mistral and Boho to find new additions and inspiration for this season to go with those new shoes from Schuh or Moda in Pelle and then accessorise from Claires, Tie Rack or Enekes. Bag a bargain at TK Maxx on the first floor at the top of the escalators and from there walk through to Cavendish House to explore all of the top label concessions at the House of Fraser.

If your after something a little special visit Dotty Chic, our first floor boutique selling unique women’s labels, fascinators and vintage accessories or explore By Local for accessories hand made by craftsmen in Gloucestershire to complete the look.

For lingerie there’s Triumph, La Senza or Ann Summers and to add the finishing touches there’s jewellery from Pia, the Regent Goldsmith, Ernest Jones, Crystals, Aura, Amber and Silver and Crystal Chain. David Christopher’s jewellery range now includes a wide selection of the popular Pandora items so why not treat yourself to a new charm!

For menswear visit BHS, River Island and Squat Orange.

And when it’s time for a well-earned rest, why not check out the Bridge Café on the first floor link to Cavendish House, our newest food and beverage outlet. You can also pop in for coffee at Soho or Druckers or if a traditional cooked meal or a late breakfast hits the spot visit Butlers at the top of the escalator near the High Street entrance.
