Editors’ notes: 

The Cheltenham Trust was established in 2014.

 

As a registered charity, the Trust offers Cheltenham’s most iconic venues – the contemporary Wilson Art Gallery and Museum; the Grade I historic Pittville Pump Room; the elegant Town Hall and Skillicorne Gardens, and the vibrant Leisure At Cheltenham and the Prince of Wales Stadium.

The Trust supports the economy, community, cultural and social offer in Cheltenham providing arts, culture and heritage, entertainment, sport and leisure. Through its outreach work it delivers projects that benefit the community and enables all ages to access art, culture, sport and leisure.

The Wilson hosts a rich programme of exhibitions and events and is available to hire as an alternative, contemporary venue. Its outdoor roof terrace is a unique setting for hosting an event. The venue provides space for corporate meetings, launches, parties, dinners, dances and celebrations.

The magnificent Grade I Pittville Pump Room is the jewel of Cheltenham’s regency architecture. Its location in the beautiful Pittville Park has made this award winning, landmark building one of Gloucestershire’s most impressive venues for weddings, dinners, exhibitions and corporate meetings.

The elegant Edwardian Grade II listed Town Hall is a popular venue. It has a packed programme of entertainment, attracting around 90,000 visitors each year, to live comedy and celebrity speakers, music, concerts, dance and theatre. It is also available for hire for a wide range of events, meetings and weddings. The Skillicorne Gardens, adjacent to the Town Hall, provide a secret walled garden for a perfect private al fresco event.

Leisure At Cheltenham has more than 2,000 visitors each day and provides state of the art leisure facilities with three swimming pools; a fitness suite and more than 60 fitness classes. The Prince of Wales Stadium regularly hosts sports and track meetings.
