Leading national audit, tax and advisory firm in Cheltenham Crowe Clark Whitehill, is the latest big business to become one of the top sponsors of Rock the Cotswolds, the campaign showcasing the creativity, venues, events, organisations and world-leading businesses in the Cotswolds.

Richard Austin, Cheltenham Office managing partner at Crowe Clark Whitehill, said: “Rock the Cotswolds is a brilliant initiative and what they are saying is bang on the money: There are so many amazing businesses and things going on across the region that don’t receive enough attention, so we’re looking forward to working with them to help change perceptions locally and nationally: this is a great place to live, work and build a business.” Crowe Clark Whitehill’s Cheltenham office was established over 50 years ago and its team has a clear perspective on the breadth of business and economic activity across the region.

Since Rock the Cotswolds launched in June this year, the campaign has built up thousands of followers from across the UK. Each month it adds five new ‘Rockers’ to its roster of exciting businesses, people, events, charities or venues located here. There are currently over 100 ‘Rockers’ listed on the website, helping change perceptions of an area known more for its rolling hillsides and pretty villages.

Rock the Cotswolds also organises events to promote the Cotswolds locally and nationally, and its website is already a huge information resource for those seeking information about a side of the Cotswolds not often portrayed in the wider media. Plans are already under way to substantially grow website content next year.

Rock the Cotswolds founder, Oli Christie, said: “We are over the moon that a national firm of the professional stature of Crowe Clark Whitehill clearly sees our campaign’s business value. That they are also determined to get stuck in is proof that they really get the point of the project. As accountants they know it’s a numbers game: the more who know about Rock the Cotswolds, the more positive effect it will have on the Cotswold economy.”

Cheltenham Racecourse will also be rocking the Cotswolds on December 12 and 13 when it teams up with Rock the Cotswolds During The International on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 December, Cheltenham Racecourse and Rock the Cotswolds will be throwing an ‘Après-Ski’ party open to all racegoers. Tickets for the Cheltenham Racecourse Après-Ski party are available through and Cheltenham Racecourse on 0844 579 3003 or visit Tickets will cost just £10 in addition to the normal Club/Tattersall’s tickets, which is £22 on Friday 12 and £25 on Saturday 13, when booked in advance.
