The school summer holidays are upon us, and here at The Local Answer we know it can be a challenge to keep the family entertained when school is out.

So we’ve put together a handy guide of the best things to do in each of our five publication areas – Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, North Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds – in the coming months.


Art Unbound
Having already commenced on Sunday 26th May, the Rococo Garden is holding a new sculpture exhibition until Sunday 8th September in which the work of 18 sculptors’ work from across the country will be showcased to the public.

Coupled with further workshops and talks, the mission of the exhibition is to present the concept of freedom o form through emotive pieces crafted from a variety of media.
