Come and meet us!

We’re excited to announce a brand new festival coming in 2023 – Storyhouse Queer.

If you’re a local Chester/Cheshire-based LGBTQIA+ creative (visual artists, performers, theatre practitioners, musicians, writers, poets and more!) we’d love to meet you, find out about your work, and talk about opportunities to be a part of the programme. Join Suzie Henderson (Creative Director) and George West (Communities Manager) in the Kitchen for a chat on either of the dates listed below. It would be great if you could let us know you’re coming by filling in the form below, and we’ll make sure there’s tea and cake. If you can’t make either date but would like to talk to us, leave a note in the comments box and we’ll be in touch.

Not local but would like to get involved? Fill out the form below anyway and let us know!
Plus – come and see us at Chester Pride this summer!
