Storyhouse is Chester’s brand new cultural centre: theatre, cinema, library, studio theatre, restaurant, and bar housed in a rejuvenated 1930s art deco Odeon cinema building.

Storyhouse, as an organisation, has been creating theatre, cinema and music events, festivals and other things to see and do for a while now. Projects like Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre and Moonlight Flicks have seen us entertain and inspire Chester’s audiences over the past seven years.  On the journey, we’ve picked up some great customers and supporters.

Together with our partners at Cheshire West and Chester Council, we’ve designed one of the most inspiring new arts buildings in the country.  In fact it’s the biggest project of its kind underway outside London.

Storyhouse’s building opens in May 2017 with an opening season of four home-produced shows, the first being The Beggar’s Opera. Before then you’ll find an increasing amount of information on this site on other shows, film, a great new library, ways to take part, ways to contribute, and ways to make a difference. We’ll see you soon!
