'Tis the season to be stylish

Shopping at the Regent Arcade

Regent Arcade is almost fully let for Christmas, with a whole host of new stores to tempt you along with existing favourites. It’s been a busy year; our frontage has been redeveloped to make way for a brand new H&M and River Island, and we’re looking forward to seeing lots of shoppers coming through the doors this festive season.

Other new fashion additions that we’re delighted to welcome include Quiz and Moda Collections. Fashion forward chain Quiz aims to bring the catwalk to the shop floor. With a focus on eveningwear, it’s a perfect place to visit if you’re looking for an outfit for a seasonal night out. Moda Collections is an independent store offering high-quality, wearable ladieswear.

We’re happy to welcome back seasonal favourites African Creations and Calendar Club to the ground floor. The dynamic team behind African Creations travel to Zimbabwe themselves to source original handmade art, sculpture and crafts direct from the local artists. A fairtrade company in the truest sense of the word, they personally deal with the artists to ensure they get a fair price for their crafts.

We’ve all got those ‘hard to buy for’ friends and family members. Luckily, Calendar Club comes to the rescue with an unrivalled range of calendars and diaries to suit even the most obscure of interests. From Where’s Wally to The Only Way is Essex, this store is full of stocking fillers for everyone.

A new arrival to the first floor of Regent Arcade is The Salon Stop. Offering a brilliant range of expert beauty treatments, there’s no excuse for unruly brows this party season! Alongside professional eyebrow threading, the team also offer tinting, waxing and massage.

Don’t forget those all-important cards. Remind your love ones that you’re thinking of them this Christmas with a thoughtful card from Card Factory. At prices that won’t break the bank, you’ll be able to find cards for everyone on your Christmas list.

And that’s not all - there’s even more to come at Regent Arcade. We can’t wait for the arrival of Copenhagen-founded brand Tiger at the end of November. This quirky store sells fun and practical own branded merchandise at amazing prices. You’ll love the unusual and stylish homeware, kitchenware and stationery. The brand will offer something different to Cheltenham's retail mix, and we can’t wait to shop there.

Santa will be switching on our magical Christmas lights at 5:15pm on Saturday 23rd November, so bring the kids along for a fun-filled afternoon. The Heart Angels will be joining in the excitement too, with festive freebies and a prize draw that could just make your Christmas.

When you next visit us, pick up your copy of our Autumn/Winter issue of Arcade magazine. Full of shopping inspiration and winter style ideas, we’re also playing Santa and giving you the chance to win an iPad!
