Back to Business for Christmas 2020

Wednesday December 9, 2020

Although the end of lockdown is good news for many of our businesses, we recognise that for some of you in the hospitality sector, being in Tier 2 is still going to be difficult, particularly at this time of year. 

Extended Hours

Our message to the public is that Cheltenham is a safe place to come and enjoy Christmas shopping and socialise within the restrictions of Tier 2. 

With the announcement by Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick that retailers will be able to extend their daily opening hours from Monday to Saturday in the run-up to Christmas and through January, it is hoped this extension will make socially distanced shopping easier and ease transport pressures.

We are encouraging all businesses to take advantage of this and have worked with Marketing Cheltenham to put together a guide.  If you haven’t already let us know what your opening hours are please email us at

Please also submit your festive dining packages and events here for inclusion in Visit Cheltenham’s Christmas guide.
