Encouraging Creative Enterprise in Cheltenham West

What is Create on the Square?

In 2016, we converted a disused retail unit on Coronation Square, Cheltenham, UK, into Create on the Square, a Tea Bar, coworking space and general catalyst for change in the area.

We encourage creative enterprise in all kinds of areas. Local entrepreneurs and small business use the space for coworking and workshops. Community groups take part in craft, writing and social events. Local artisans sell their art and crafts through the Pop-up shop and gallery wall space. Others gain work experience in the Tea Bar and other projects. We have also launched some new business ventures, such as Escape Rooms Cheltenham and

Our Vision

If we are successful we will see:


The local community working together (Community)

New businesses start that benefit society (Entrepreneurs)

Local people developing skills and gaining employment (Employment Opportunities)
