Peace Celebrations 1919

Several peace celebration took place in Cheltenham over the summer of 1919. Commencing with a Peace Fete held in Pittville Park during July and culminating in a tribute to the ‘fighting men of Cheltenham’ in August, where more than 4,000 returned servicemen marched between Montpellier Park and Pittville Gardens. Later this year on November 10th, we hope to follow in their footsteps and hold a community march through Cheltenham to commemorate the 1,290 servicemen and women who are listed on Cheltenham’s War Memorial.
