It’s been announced that the popular Light Up Cheltenham event will be returning to the town in the new year.

Some of Cheltenham’s most iconic landmark buildings will be dramatically lit up in February 2020 for a third year running.

Light Up Cheltenham has been organised by Cheltenham Business Improvement District (BID) and follows the success of the event in February 2019.

Kevan Blackadder, Director of Cheltenham BID said: “We are working to ensure that something is going on in the town throughout the year and have been praised for making February special with Light Up Cheltenham.

“The combination of the floodlit buildings and the observation wheel went very well last year and we’re delighted it is returning again this year.”

From Saturday 1st to Sunday 23rd February, over 30 buildings and landmarks will be lit up, and a giant observation wheel will be located in Imperial Gardens to give visitors an elevated view of the spectacle.

The launch night will see street theatre drumming group ‘Spark!’ returning to entertain crowds once again, and the town will also go red for Valentine’s Day.

Alongside a self-guided tour which will be available to visitors, there will be a guided tour with local blue badge guides available to purchase. The tour will take visitors through the town, offering insights into the hidden stories of Cheltenham and the buildings involved in the event.
