About the sponsor: The Brewery Quarter


The Brewery Quarter is the ultimate entertainment destination in Cheltenham, offering everything from bowling and crazy golf through to a state-of-the-art 4DX cinema, and a huge range of delicious places to eat and drink.

During freshers’ fortnight in 2019 the venue is hosting a huge student lock in event where students can pick up great discounts on food, drink and clothing after hours.

Whether you prefer burger and chips, or a classy cocktail drenched in dry ice, there’s something for all tastes at The Brewery Quarter – the home of great nights out in Cheltenham.

Home of the coolest cocktails in Cheltenham, The Botanist – as the name might suggest – takes you into the stylish world of a plant-loving scientist.

Beautifully themed, this effortlessly cool student spot offers five per cent back every time you spend, thanks to the ‘My New World’ app. Available on both the App Store and Google Play, customers can start building up a credit after their first visit.


4. Cineworld


Cineworld Cheltenham at The Brewery Quarter has just undergone a huge renovation to create a brand-new VIP suite, where you can grab a buffet dinner and unlimited snacks before lounging back in a super-comfy recliner to watch a movie.

The venue is also now home to a state-of-the-art 4DX screen, offering the most immersive cinema experience in existence, with moving seats, water sprayers and wind machines – all in sync with the film.

What’s even better is that students can get discount off standard price tickets when showing their student ID.

Even better, students can enjoy 25 per cent off their food bill between Sunday and Thursday.
