Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre

Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre returns in summer 2018 with three glittering new productions, children’s classic Swallows & Amazons, and Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and The Tempest. 

Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre is one of the country’s best-loved open air theatres and regularly plays to sold out audiences across the summer.  The sounds of popping corks, picnics unpacked and happy audiences is the defining sound of Chester’s summer.
