Films, food, football, photography and fast cyclists are latest Rockers

Latest Rockers

Our latest rockers deliver for lovers, travellers, sporty types and everyone who appreciates fabulous photography. A Rock the Cotswolds ‘Rocker’ is a unique and exciting business, person, event, charity or venue in the Cotswolds.


The world’s first greenfield film festival … in a green field! Make a date with the silver screen underneath the silvery moon on August 14-16 at the Great Tew Estate and watch some classic films. You can go glamping too, staying in a super cute Snoozebox Snoozy or a magical luxury tent. There’s a main stage, and themed marquees, cocktail bar and a Rock n Roll prom party. What a way to spend a summer night.


Gloucester Services

If Gloucester Services were a person, it would be Colin Firth: incredibly good-looking with a social conscience. Gloucester Services are simply the best new motorway services in the country, offering fabulous food, largely sustainably and locally sourced, all helping to creating sustainable income which goes back into the local communities.


Oh… you want to see what Gloucester Services looks like? OK then, but I think Colin makes better eye candy.


Footgolf at Brickhampton – golf with bigger balls

Want to try something new and exciting? Brickhampton Court Golf Complex is the only golf club in Gloucestershire to offer the new sport of Footgolf. Players kick a football into a large hole in as few shots as possible. It’s played on a Saturday and Sunday afternoon from 1pm at Brickhampton. With a maximum of 6 players it’s ideal for friends, families or even kids parties. Apparently there is a national foot golf association? Who knew? Not me, that’s for sure. Watching a video on
I think I’d probably only succeed if I could play golf, using the bigger holes dug for footballs. Think golf, but without the clubs and with bigger balls. It came from the Netherlands in 2009. Says it all.



Hot shot Cheltenham-based photographers and videographers who think before they click, before they film, to deliver a truly outstanding creative project, from fashion to weddings to portraits. They produced an outstanding video for our Evening With Adventurers. Watch it here:


Rock the Cotswolds’ StreetVelodrome team

The ASDA StreetVelodrome Series will be touring the country this summer and Rock the Cotswolds has its own team, promoting the Cotswolds across the UK. StreetVelodrome is the new and unique cycle sport event bringing the excitement and drama of track cycling to the people. Within hours, a high street or public space can be turned into a heart pounding, action packed theatre of track style cycle sport. Offering a new level of spectator involvement and creating a completely new pursuit racing competition for professional and amateur riders. Square.
