Cheltenham will be aglow this February when Cheltenham BID lights up the town centre like never before with a free family event.

Families can look forward to seeing some of the town’s iconic buildings lit up in a spectacular show during February as Light Up Cheltenham returns from Saturday 2 February to Sunday 24 February 2019.

With this year’s event featuring a giant observation wheel and a family-friendly launch event, SoGlos has rounded up some of the highlights below.
