Outdoor family festival in Chester park
Chester's Storyhouse arts centre is heading outside this summer with a busy programme of events for audiences of all ages.
The Storyhouse Outdoors season, from May 25, includes children’s shows, comedy, music and storytelling, all in the Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre village. The wider entertainment includes the previously-announced show Alice's Adventure
The events are designed to create a festival feel and complement the annual open air theatre season which this year features productions of Romeo and Juliet, Little Women and Stig of the Dump.
Some events are free while others cost £10 or less, with concessions for Storyhouse members.
Events will be staged within the open air theatre space itself or in the Grosvenor Park tepee, in which seating (unreserved) will be at Bavarian beer hall-style tables.
The tepee bar will be open every day, and pizza from a wood-fired oven will also be available.
Storyhouse producer Helen Redcliffe said: “This is the first time we have created a programme of additional events around the Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre shows, and I hope it will add a real festival feel to a fantastic summer in the park.
“We’ve brought together wonderful acoustic evening sets to brilliant comedy, to visits from some really entertaining, inventive and inspiring theatre companies.
“The storytelling and theatrical experiences are aimed at young theatregoers and their families and we’re also taking elements of Storyhouse’s wide-ranging regular programme of events and taking them into the great outdoors for the summer months.”
