Workshop Cheltenham is a unique mixed-use urban regeneration scheme which we deliver 20,000 sq.ft of new commercial space for the town centre. The project is located next to St. Mary’s Church, or Cheltenham Minster which is Grade I Listed and the oldest building’s in Cheltenham.
It will host and facilitate a variety of initiatives that will have a positive economic, educational, cultural, social and environmental impact on the town and will comprise:
- flexible and affordable co-working spaces, office studios and a Growth Hub business support centre for individuals, start-ups and SMEs;
- a state-of the-art performance venue and events space;
- education and community spaces.
The co-working spaces, office studios and Growth Hub components of the scheme will together form a business support ecosystem for Cheltenham’s start-ups and SMEs and particularly those in the creative sector (including digital, tech and cyber), enabling them to get established, evolve and flourish within a supportive community of like-minded people.
The state-of-the-art performance venue will provide a permanent new town centre cultural and entertainment destination delivering a year-round calendar of events to showcase local talent and enhance Cheltenham’s reputation as a leading cultural destination both domestically and internationally.
The scheme will be delivered in close collaboration with GFirst LEP, Creative England, Cheltenham Borough Council, Cheltenham Festivals, the University of Gloucestershire, CyNam, Music Works and Ecotricity among others. It is expected to open in Summer 2020.
