Her Majesty the Queen, accompanied by The Duchess of Sussex, formally opened Storyhouse on Thursday 14 June.
Here’s what went on…
This amazing visit was made possible by the tremendous support we have in Chester and in the region, and is testament to the degree to which our community has taken us to their hearts and for that we are immensely grateful and proud.
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 pioneering new library within Storyhouse, where members of the community work alongside city librarians, boasts the longest opening hours of any UK public library. 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.
