Drum roll pleeeease…for our April Rockers!

Latest Rockers

Rock The Cotswolds: showcasing the creativity, people and world-leading businesses in the Cotswolds proudly present our latest five Rockers for 2015.

Every month we hunt high and low for fantastic people and businesses, following our noses, seeking tip-offs and following leads in the dead of night, of those who love to live and work in the Cotswolds.

So here they are….

Peter Pullon 

A genius puppet maker. Who knew that the man who created Emu, Orville, the Hoffmeister bear, even the Honey Monster, lives in the Cotswolds? He recently created a ‘Sinitta’ puppet, complete with laurel leaves.

We’re so very sad to hear that Keith Harris, Orville’s owner, passed away this week. Our condolences go to all his family and friends.


The King’s Head, Cirencester

Named one of the Hot New Hotels for 2014 by The Times, the King’s Head hotel in Cirencester reopened last September after a stunning pound refurbishment of this historic building in the town’s marketplace.

It’s Vaulted Spa opened in March 2015.


Harry and Jacks

Brilliantly designed backpacks for kids. Do your kids want to be ‘powered’ by jet packs to school?

Then they’ll want a Harry and Jacks Jetpack or Scubapack. Harry and Jacks backpacks have swept the boards at design shows across the UK.

We want them to design one for grown-ups.


Air Salvage International

Europe’s market leader in dismantling and storing aircraft. This is the biggest dismantling facility you’ll ever see:

From the biggest jumbo jets to small aircraft. Air Salvage works on aircraft recovery worldwide and its boss, Mark Gregory, is very, very cool!

Engage Circus

If you want to learn to juggle, try your hand at trapeze and aerial arts, ride a unicycle, spin plates and much more, you can run away to Engage circus in Cinderford.

They’ll train anyone from 6 to 60+ years.
