Creative and Media

What's happening locally



  • The local picture reflects the national one (mostly small employers, lots of self-employment and freelance work in parts of the industry, etc)

  • Companies/opportunities are based throughout the region but some areas of the industry are likely to be more plentiful in certain locations, e.g. crafts (Stroud – where Damien Hirst has studios), design/marketing (Cheltenham and increasingly Gloucester), and publishing (Cheltenham). 

  • Gloucestershire, especially Cheltenham, has lots of festivals and events, which could offer the chance to get involved, including jazz, music, literature and screenwriters festivals

  • The Gloucester Media Group is a useful source of information for local training organisations, colleges and employers connected to the creative and media industries
