Good luck to The Suffolks - in our Boho Cheltenham - nominated for the 2018 SoGlos Gloucestershire L

Updated: Jan 18

If you think that Cheltenham is simply a glamorous Regency town, renowned for The Cheltenham Gold Cup, Pitville Pump Room, the famous Ladies College Gustav Holst’s Birthplace, the cafe culture…oh and PROMENADING - think again ! Believe it my friends, here in Cheltenham, there is most definitely, a BOHEMIAN Quarter….see the video

​​Really? Yes !

Beneath Cheltenham’s well documented formal culture of well-to-do England, there is a small and not insignificant Bohemian space, accessible only by the enlightened, or the intrepid tourist. That space: ’THE SUFFOLKS’.

It’s not Nationally advertised. It doesn’t have a parade. No dignitaries are overtly in attendance and…. It’s hidden from the view of the usual Cheltenham Tourists, (though by location rather than intentionally),. It’s definitely NOT yet on the Cultural Map of England. But it is most definitely on the map of the Bohemian Cheltonian. Well, maybe that's about to change! The Suffolks has just been nominated for the best shopping destination of the year in SoGlos's Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards 2018. You have until 30th April to vote.

Not only do they have great shops, boutiques and restaurants, it holds a number of tiny street event s where all, without formal invitation, are invited. Just on one Main Street spilling out inconspicuously onto a few tiny side streets, The Suffolks are filled with fascinating local people and artisan finds. Cotswold food and wine (we live in the farming Capital of the UK), crafts, Designers, Arts, Vintage and the popular 'Toe in the Water' pitches, showcasing new entrepreneurs. If you’re not visiting the stalls, there’s independent shops, coffee houses, restaurants, small local Bars, vintage converted cinemas, antique shops for chandeliers.

So what to do when you’ve enjoyed the usual touristic events - the Science Festival… Music Festival…Literature Festival…. Races…. Why not get down with the Bohemia of Cheltenham and during your next bank holiday or festive occasion - please do give a welcome visit to ‘The Suffolks’.

The Suffolks is totally unique and really does deserve to be the no.1 shopping destination.

Evenlode Films and Productions are highly recommended by our clients, take a moment to



Julian Sammon - Business Development Manager Minelab International

Having worked with Tim, Catherine and their team over the past 3 years I couldn't recommend them highly enough. This year's product launch conception, planning and execution at the Detectival outdoor event went beyond the scope of the brief and they provided additional ideas for content and creating an experience around the event that was well received and brilliantly executed. They really think about how much can be gained from the investment that is made in time and money by their clients and work as hard as they can to deliver the optimum. Looking forward to working with them again in the future


Guy Woodcock - CEO Montpellier PR

I've known and worked with Catherine a long time and she's the consummate professional; brave, determined, organised and thoroughly enterprising - an abundance of ideas and creative thinking.


Natasha Russell - CEO  Natasha Russell Events

Great support from the team with outstanding videos results produced on a really quick turnaround. Not only did they produce excellent short 'story to camera' pieces but an outstanding creative piece to support the campaign


Dany Freemantle - CEO Oasis Events

These guys are great to work with. Between their production, mapping and filming expertise they can support every aspect of our business and are collaborative, responsive and generous with their time and expertise. Fast and punctual with deliverables and a failsafe pair of hands whatever the project.


Dominic Cotter - BBC Presenter

I have worked with Catherine Mountain (Producer) from Evenlode Productions on a number of occasions. Her company has won the contract with Cheltenham Bid to supply the town with various memorable events, including projecting a World War 2 animation onto the side of the municipal offices as well as providing art installations and Imagery for Christmas celebrations. Added to that I worked with Catherine at the Minelab Detectival Festival in the Cotswolds. Her outstanding professionalism and creative talent is second to none and I would recommend her and Evenlode productions for your event , whether it’s filming or an audio production. I look forward to working with Catherine again soon


Lesley Saint - CEO Cotswold Social Media

We worked with Catherine and Tim (Co Founders)  on a promotional video for the historic Montpellier area of Cheltenham. We were really

impressed with their creativity and commitment to our project. The result was fantastic and something over and above what we expected. We became aware of Evenlode's skills after seeing the outstanding Remembrance Day projection and really wanted to work with them. Highly recommended


Kelly Ramsey 

The visual impact of the film the team created to honour Cheltenham's Fallen for the WW1 centenary was breathtaking.

An honest, creative, passionate team that know exactly how to deliver and support you in achieving your aims
