About the Chester Heritage Festival

The festival begins on 21st June with Talking Chester at Storyhouse; a full day of talks, Q&A sessions, demonstrations and local artists. A free and fully accessible programme.

Taking place in a variety of locations across the city from 21st – 30th June, you can join us for a jam-packed programme of walks, talks, workshops, performances and more! You could kick off your day with Roman Zumba in the Amphitheatre, explore the prestigious Chester Castle and take the kids to enjoy crafting sessions or sensory experiences in Chester Cathedral.


Booking is essential and recommended for many of the events. Keep up to date with the programme as it grows at and follow us at @chesterherifest on all platforms.

Whether resident or visitor, in person or online, we hope you will find something of interest as Chester Heritage Festival tells the stories that have accumulated over two millennia.
