Chester Heritage Festival 19 – 28 June 2020: Cancelled

Please Note: Given the projected timescale for the coronavirus outbreak, coupled with guidance issued by CWaC Council, this year’s festival events are cancelled and will be held over for 2021.

Annually Chester Civic Trust and Cheshire West and Chester Council partner with other organisations to tell the story of our city and its people.  This year the Heritage Festival will offer over 80 events and activities for residents and visitors of all ages.

Stories will unfold on the streets, along the waterways, around the walls, in libraries, at the racecourse, in Bishop Lloyd’s Palace and in other historic buildings.  We are also asking you to tell your stories and memories of Chester.

Enjoy a programme of walks, talks, exhibitions, children’s activities, street entertainment and more, including the Midsummer Watch parades, Chester Archaeology Society’s Conference, and Archfest at the Grosvenor Museum.

Learn more about the Festival on Roman Day, Saturday 23 May, at Chester Races, when a colourful parade will launch the Festival.  Then join us on the Open Course for a preview of festival events and activities for young people.

Look out for the festival booklet which will be available in May, or find further details as they are published on www.visitcheshire.com/chesterheritagefestival. Meanwhile follow us on social media @chesterherifest.
