Get in front of local families with our highly-targeted advertising opportunities.

Reach local families. Boost your business.

Welcome to Cheltenham Rocks – the digital platform dedicated to providing local families with upcoming events, classes, and fun things to do in Cheltenham.

With a social following of over 8000+ local parents, we are fast becoming the ‘go to’ source for family events and child-friendly Cheltenham attractions.

The only ‘what’s on’ platform developed specifically for local parents (and run by local parents) we have first-hand experience in the needs of the region’s families.

We share news on everything family-focussed across the area - from where to find the town’s best playgrounds or Cheltenham preschool groups and classes, to fun-day itineraries and details of new local kids’ menus.

Parents come to Cheltenham Rocks actively looking for things to do. Meaning we have an in-market audience ready to engage with our advertiser offers.

Making use of our filterable listings system, our ads are highly targeted. We can put your advert in front of parents who are already searching for the sort of events, services, or local attractions you provide.

We receive web and social media interaction from both Cheltenham-based parents/carers and those planning Cheltenham day trips.

Alongside our website we are proud to have a loyal and engaged community on:

  • Facebook (4k+ fans)
  • Twitter (2k followers)
  • Instagram (1k + followers)

Parents will find advertiser listings through search engines, social media, the Cheltenham Rocks website, Cheltenham Rocks for mobile, and other external referrers.

Our popular editorial content includes:

  • Daily social media posts
  • Frequent blogs
  • Weekend ‘what’s on’ guides
  • Newsletter (coming soon)
