About the Chester Heritage Festival

In 2023, having launched at Chester Racecourse, the annual Chester Heritage Festival took place from Saturday 17 to Wednesday 28 June. Events for all ages included walks to explore the city, opportunities to learn more about the people and history of Chester through talks, films and online events, activities at Chester Cathedral, The Castle, and New Chester Market, along the Rows and City Walls, and on the streets.

Chester Eastgate

The 2023 festival had a focus on Chester’s waterways and the Rows and you can find specially-produced films on both subjects in the 'Our Heritage' section of this website.

Tudor Characters

Whether resident or visitor, in person or online, we hope you found something of interest as Chester Heritage Festival 2023 told the stories that have accumulated over two millennia.

We hope you will join us again in 2024, when the festival takes place between 21st and 30th June.
