February is all lit-up in Cheltenham

February is all lit-up in Cheltenham

Hundreds of people saw the launch of Light Up Cheltenham with spectacular street theatre drumming group Spark!

The three-week event, which features a Giant Observation Wheel and more than 40 illuminated buildings.

The LED drummers made their way from The Brewery Quarter up The Promenade to Imperial Gardens, home to the 35-metre wheel.

There will be a range of colours displayed on the buildings throughout the event and all will turn red for Valentine’s Day.

The wheel was a great success with non-stop queues for the most of Saturday evening. Kevan Blackadder, BID Director, said: "We’re delighted it’s already proving so popular and will certainly think about bringing it back for future events.”

The neighbouring Garden Bar in Imperial Gardens was open from 6pm-8pm to the public during the Light Up launch.

Sophie Wrench, from Glorious Events at the Town Hall, said: “What a fantastic event. It was great to support Cheltenham BID and to see Cheltenham’ s community come together.”

Further entertainment will be provided by the Photon Juggling Glow Show, who will perform on High Street on Saturday February 16 at the start of the half-term holiday.
