The likes of The Wonderwall Gallery, Oeno wine importers and Masthead Art were quick to contribute information which goes towards creating dedicated pages for each shop in Cirencester”.”Local shops and business owners have also been keen to offer suggestions on the future development of the Cirencester Shopping website and Commatic will be working closely with them to implement their ideas”.”We are hoping that shops will tell shoppers about special offers, promotions and new product lines via the Offers page on the Cirencester Shopping website.

An eclectic mix of live entertainment is on offer in the gorgeous surroundings of Cheltenham’s favourite venues this summer. Celebrated names in comedy include Simon Amstell, Russell Howard and Paul Merton’s Impro Chums. Music lovers can look forward to Petula Clark, Boy George, Billy Ocean and The Stylistics to name but a few.
Derek Aldridge, Cheltenham Town Hall and Entertainment Manager said “Tickets are already selling fast and with visits to our website doubling in the last year, we are looking forward to a busy summer season”.
For a truly memorable night out live comedy is an excellent choice and there is an impressive line-up this summer such as Simon Amstell who originally made his name as presenter of Channel 4’s Popworld and currently presents Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Hot on the heels of 3 sell out tours in the space of a year Russell Howard is back with a brand new show. A regular on BBC2’s Mock the Week and BBC6 Music, Russell’s enthusiasm and humour are infectious. Anything could happen at Paul Merton’s Impro Chums show. Paul and his chums take audience suggestions and the laughter ensues. Be warned though there could be some swearing! A must-see is Frankie Boyle who has the accolades of appearing in every episode of BBC2’s Mock the Week and over one hundred sold-out tour dates.
Edinburgh Festival Preview is a rare opportunity to see exciting new material by up and coming comedians ahead of the famous Edinburgh Festival. Rob Deering and Danielle Ward join us in the Pillar Room at Cheltenham Town Hall in July.
The musical programme includes Petula Clark, a consummate entertainer with record sales of over 70 million. Petula continues to delight audiences worldwide with her beautiful vocals. Renowned for his unmistakable voice and presence Boy George comes to Cheltenham performing hits from Culture Club and his solo career. One of Britain’s biggest recording artists Billy Ocean will have audiences tapping their toes to When The Going Gets Tough, Love Really Hurts and many more. Soul legends The Stylistics bring us hits You Make Me Feel Brand New and Can’t Give You Anything (But My Love). An Evening with the OperaBabes will appeal to all music lovers. Enchanting music, sung beautifully and with their inimitable style of presentation and dazzling costumes, this will be a truly magical evening.
Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel perform hits from Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me) through to their latest release The Quality of Mercy, tipped to be Steve’s best yet. 60’s icons The Animals, joined by Spencer Davis treat us to classics such as House of the Rising Sun and Keep on Running.
Continuing with the nostalgic mood Katy Setterfield as Dusty Springfield in Concert will be just the ticket. Katy won the BBC series The One and Only and is touring the UK fresh from Las Vegas’s Legends In Concert where she appeared with the world’s top tribute artists.
Or, of course 4 Poofs and a Piano may take your fancy, more hairdresser than barbershop, they were spotted performing at Soho’s Groucho Club by the producers of Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and have been with the show ever since.
We also bring you the Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers, thundering rhythms on huge taiko drums will resound around the Town Hall – a feast for all the senses. For a girls’ night out The Vagina Monologues is both thought-provoking and hilarious.
Appearances by Tony Stockwell, star of Living TV’s Street Psychic and International spiritualist and medium Colin Fry from Most Haunted are two dates for the diary for anyone intrigued by the spirit world.
Get your dancing shoes on for the Summer Ballroom Dancing Festival in August. The weekend includes evening balls, cabaret and lectures hosted by professional dancers, including Andrew Cuerden and Hanna Haarala who will be well known to fans of Strictly Come Dancing.
The Cheltenham Concert Series offers a striking programme for the 2008–2009 season, including the Philharmonia Orchestra featuring outstanding Finnish conductor Leif Segerstam who makes his Cheltenham debut. They are joined by other leading orchestras such as the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
With a selection of regular events such as the Sunday Showcase Concerts and Regency Concerts at the Pittville Pump Room, Howlers comedy nights, a range of Dance events, plus free Bands in the Park concerts held in Cheltenham’s beautiful parks, there is certainly plenty to entertain you.

Blueprints for the future of Stroud Town Centre go on show to the public next week.
The Stroud Public Realm Strategy will guide future investment in any space between buildings, such as roads, pavements, squares etc. It can include the paving and road surfaces, benches, cycle racks, lighting, public art, bollards and railings. The plans on view will cover key areas of the town centre and revised traffic flows.
The plans can be seen on Thursday 8th May (4.30pm - 8pm) in the Ball Room at the Subscription Rooms. This will be the public’s first chance to see the plans, ask questions and make comments.
“Public involvement in this whole process is absolutely essential,” says Caroline White, Stroud District Council’s Development Surveyor. “The town centre belongs to them. The plans on show are proposals - it’s up to the public to tell us whether we’ve got it right and if not, what we need to change. There will be more consultation before anything happens on the ground.”
The Public Realm Strategy project is led by the Stroud Concordat, a body comprising representatives of Stroud District and Town Councils, Gloucestershire County Council, Stroud Chamber of Trade & Commerce and Project Stroud.
The Concordat has commissioned Dorset-based NEW Masterplanning to draw up the Strategy. The company has a long history of working in Gloucestershire. Support will be provided by Hamilton Baillie traffic and shared space specialists. Before starting work, the firm examined the town in detail, collating key information to understand the town as it currently works, including pedestrian, cycle and vehicle traffic; development opportunities and plans for restoring the Cotswold Canals.
The project will be funded by Stroud District Council with some additional funding From Stroud Town Council.

Following the success of the recent Tewkesbury Police return your bike day, the Safer Community Team will be holding another event at their Barton Street Police Station in the town between 12.30 and 2.30pm on Saturday 17th May.The idea is for bicycles that have come into the possession of the Police, usually after they have been recovered having been stolen, can be reunited with their owners. At the same time officers can offer practical advice and hopefully prevent the same thing happening again.PCSO Emma Birch from the Safer Community Team said, “Several bikes which we believe have been stolen are recovered in our area every month, though unfortunately owners fail to record details of their cycles which makes it harder for us to reunite them with their machines. We ask that anyone who has had one stolen over the past few months attends with some documentation or, if they just want some practical advice regarding security together with having their cycle post-coded with an ultra-violet pen, then they can pop along with their cycle.”This time, anyone coming along to reclaim a lost or stolen bicycle, or just for advice, will be placed in a draw and three winners will receive a free quality cycle lock and chain.PCSO Birch continued, “Most of the cycles that are stolen in are area are left insecure which presents an opportune target to thieves. We urge anyone who uses a cycle to think about security and purchase a lock. Also, record its frame number and details about is as this makes it much easier for us should you be unfortunate enough to have it stolen”.
