Cheltenham is renowned for the Festivals which include the Literature Festival (host to a wealth of famous people), the Science Festival and the Food and Drink Festival; many of which are held in the Historic Town Hall and its beautiful Montpellier Gardens together with the Everyman Theatre which has recently been restored.

Cheltenham is also home to the Cheltenham Gold Cup Festival held at Cheltenham's Prestbury Park Racecourse; Pittville Park is conveniently located only half a mile or so from both the Town Centre and the Racecourse.
