The Cheltenham pub and bar scene will be buzzing more than normal next month when the town holds its third annual cocktail week.

Now a firm fixture in the calendar Cheltenham Cocktail Week will run from Friday, May 10 to Saturday, May 18 with a record number of bars, restaurants and hotels taking part.

Organised by the Cheltenham Business Improvement District (BID), the event will highlight the varied spectrum of bars around the town.

BID Operations Manager Belinda Hunt said: "We're pleased that so many different businesses are taking part in Cocktail Week this year.

"We have such a diverse range of bars, clubs and pubs in Cheltenham, all offering something different and we want people to enjoy the variety of venues around the town."

Venues across the town will also be holding associated events to go alongside the hard work of sampling your favourite tipple.
