About the event

An illustrated lecture to provide an introductory overview of three key aspects that help give Chester its distinctive sense-of-place: the Roman fortress; the unique system of Row buildings that line the main streets; and the vernacular Revival, which has given the city its characteristic magpie architecture.

Please note: this lecture is not intended for children, although suitable for older teenagers; booking of this free event is not necessary; the lecture theatre will be open 30 minutes before the lecture start time of 11:15; and we request that you are seated at least 5 minutes before this and observe any current Covid regulations or guidance.

Your lecturer is Paul Hyde, former Heritage Interpretation Officer for the city and member of Chester Civic Trust.  Paul is also leading a walk, Chester’s 3 Rs, on both Sunday 19 June and Monday 20 June. This walk complements the lecture but can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone event.
