Civic Day

Civic Day is a national celebration of civic pride - a day when communities across the country say "we care about where we live".

The first Civic Day was held in 2011, and is now celebrated by many community groups in lots of different ways including tours, competitions, street parties, etc. Some local Civic Societies arrange a week of events around Civic Day.

The 2017 Civic Day was marked by an exhibition about the history and identity of the Lower High Street in the Chapel Arts Gallery, Knapp Road. The event was made possible by the collaboration of Cheltenham West End Partnership and the University of Gloucestershire  History Department.

For details of other Civic Day events see civicvoice.org.uk or the local media.
