Opened in May 2017, Storyhouse is a library, theatre, cinema, restaurant, bar, community centre and arts hub. It is one of the country’s most successful cultural buildings, with one million customers in its first year. The building will be 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. Storyhouse also runs the country’s most successful regional open-air theatre company, in the city’s main park. 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.


Storyhouse theatre, in my opinion, has been a long time coming and what they have done with this once empty building is truly impressive. The architects along with the theatres project managers have pumped a breath of fresh air into this once art deco cinema and along with its modern additions, they really have done Chester proud. With some amazing shows, films, artists and an impressive library, there truly is something for everyone at Storyhouse and as if that wasn’t enough, they have a great little cafe to boot, with some of the best coffee I’ve tasted in a while. All in all I was pleasantly surprised with Storeyhouse and I can’t really complement the theatre without commenting on the staff within, who it has to be said are really friendly and go that extra mile no matter what’s asked of them. But don’t just take my word for it, why don’t you see for yourself!
