Storyhouse Festival of Languages

A brand new festival celebrating Chester's diverse speaking cultures, in January 2019

We’re excited to announce a brand new festival celebrating Chester’s diverse speaking cultures, in January 2019. Storyhouse Festival of Languages will take place between 23 – 27 January and will welcome Chester’s international community to come together to share their unique cultures.

Alex Clifton, artistic director, Storyhouse said: “Chester is a diverse and creative community, with languages from across the world spoken in every corner of the borough. Storyhouse Festival of Languages will bring the community together to showcase and share their cultures.”

Storytelling, workshops and performance make up the festival line – up as well as leading figures on public speaking and the city’s first ever Human Library.
