Both children and adults alike are in for a treat this half-term as events for the town’s popular Light Up Cheltenham scheme continues. The town has already seen hundreds of people coming to admire the Regency buildings lit up in a range of fantastic colours for the past couple of weeks, but Saturday February 16th will see visitors treated to something even more special.

The Photon Glow Show, which features a talented pair of acrobatic jugglers, will be performing a magical illuminated juggling show outside John Lewis & Partners store on Cheltenham High Street from 5pm. Whilst admiring the dynamic duo, visitors can also enjoy music from singer Bethany Goodman. Bethany will be treating crowds to some favourite 60s, 70s and 80s music, as well as some popular theatre tunes, perfect for families to enjoy.

These upcoming events follow on from last week’s performance by street drumming group Spark! who put on a fantastic illuminated musical show where crowds snapped some fabulous pictures of the drummers and buildings. BID Operations Manager, Belinda Hunt, said: “We have seen some incredibly beautiful pictures shared across social media, showing the world what a stunning town Cheltenham is.”

A 35ft observation wheel is also proving to be popular amongst both locals and visitors, and remains open until 8pm on Sunday 24th February, so there’s plenty of time to take a ride over the half-term week. The wheel can be found (although it's not hard to miss!) in Imperial Gardens, providing stunning views over the town both day and night. With tickets costing just £5 for an adult or £4 for a child, it’s an ideal way to spend some quality time.
