Easter What’s On Guide for Cheltenham – Week 2

Week 2 of the Easter hols and Cheltenham Rocks has a round-up of the events and activities on this week.

There’s a bit of variation here which is a good thing as, after the shenanigans of the last week, you may never want to see another chocolate egg again.  There’s also some activities which I would definitely consider to be sport (ahem) so don’t fret about the extra poundage from the weekend…
