Established in 2010, 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.
Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre is produced by Storyhouse, Chester’s award-winning cultural centre which opened in May 2017.
Opened in May 2017, Storyhouse is a library, theatre and cinema. It is one of the country’s most successful cultural buildings, with one million customers in its first year. The building was formally opened by Her Majesty the Queen and The Duchess of Sussex, on 14 June 2018.
The pioneering new library within Storyhouse, where members of the community work alongside city librarians, boasts the longest opening hours of any UK public library and is open every day until 11pm.
The company also runs a highly successful theatre company which has gained national acclaim for its new stage adaptations, including the first ever version of Enid Blyton’s The Secret Seven.
We offer over 2,000 activities each year for local marginalised groups, including autism friendly colouring sessions, sewing groups for refugees and regular classes for isolated and older communities. Find out more at storyhouse.com
