We are delighted to launch the third annual Cotswold Life Cheltenham BID Awards to celebrate our brilliant businesses which make Cheltenham town centre the vibrant, dynamic, diverse area that it is.
Across 10 categories, this year’s awards celebrated the very best traders in the Cheltenham BID zone – the area of the town centre from the High Street, along The Promenade to Montpellier, and down to the Brewery Quarter.

Since its inception in 2016, the board behind the BID – Cheltenham’s Business Improvement District – has done a huge amount to raise the profile of the town as a retail and leisure destination. The BID is behind the Light Up Cheltenham event, which bought the Giant Observation Wheel to the town and saw more than 40 buildings floodlit. It also introduced the popular Cheltenham Gift Card, now accepted by John Lewis & Partners. It’s also campaigned for major infrastructure projects, including the £700,000 project to revamp the High Street.
Those who visit Cheltenham are lucky enough to enjoy the huge range of restaurants, bars and leisure outlets in the dazzling Brewery Quarter.The Promenade must be one of the prettiest shopping streets in the whole of the UK. The charming independent boutiques and salons of Montpellier, along with its quirky pubs, area dream. And with the opening of the dazzling new John Lewis, Cheltenham’s status as the county’s premier retail destination is sealed.
