Pop-up steakhouse at No.38 The Park
We’re all about great food at The Lucky Onion – and this Race Week we’ve upped the ante with a new pop-up steakhouse at our beautiful Cheltenham townhouse No.38. Focusing on top British produce, we’ll be serving up the best cuts in town. Come May, we will be launching a permanent steak restaurant at the property so watch this space. Make a night of it and stay afterwards in one of our stunning individually-designed bedrooms which come with bold statement prints, mismatched textures and one-off artworks alongside lots of little luxuries. All of our rooms are dog friendly, too, should your four-legged friend want to join the party.

Dan Baldwin at The Paragon Gallery
At the forefront of the Young British Artist movement, contemporary British artist Dan Baldwin comes from the same abrasive, two-fingered salute school of peers Banksy, Tracey Emin and The Chapman Brothers. Known for using a kaleidoscope of colours, the artist’s work is abstract and figurative, reflecting both reality and the world of imagination. Multi-layered, both physically (Baldwin regularly uses glazes, diamond dust, collage and 3D-media) and in terms of meaning, Baldwin's subject matter is the interior of his own mind, from ruminations on love, memory or philosophical issues, to an airing of opinion on politics and current affairs.
Until 29th February

Ten Times Table at The Everyman Theatre
Robert Daws leads a star cast in Ayckbourn’s classic comedy Ten Times Table. Set in the once grand ballroom of the local Swan Hotel, this new production follows the increasingly raucous attempts of a village committee to organise the first Pendon Folk Festival. The opening of the festival, as envisaged by chairman Ray, will be a supposedly uplifting pageant based on a piece of local history, The Massacre of the Pandon Twelve. Unfortunately for Ray, his calamitous committee divides, as his wife Helen has a bone to pick… Add in a Marxist schoolteacher, a military dog-breeder and an octogenarian secretary, and the table is set for a night of hilarity.
Until 29th February
