Storyhouse

About

Storyhouse is Chester’s brand new £37m theatre, library, cinema and arts centre. The restored and revitalised 1930s Odeon building now houses an 800-seat auditorium, a 200-seat studio theatre, a restaurant and two bars and a 100-seat boutique cinema.

Summer will see an opening season of four productions – The Beggar’s Opera, Alice in Wonderland, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Julius Caesar – from the team that brought you Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre – taking the atmosphere of the park and bringing it to the brand new stage. Autumn brings a season of nationally-acclaimed touring shows, spanning music, drama, comedy and dance. Christmas will also see a Storyhouse-produced production.

Alongside the stage, the100-seat cinema will feature a programme of screenings including the latest blockbuster releases, the best of British theatre live on screen, world cinema, classic films and more.

A programme of music will also fill the building with the likes of Manchester Camerata, Gran Caffe Venezia, Kabantu and Craig Charles.

Storyhouse has a spacious in-house ground floor restaurant and bar, accompanied by a separate upstairs bar with panoramic views of Chester. Chester Library has moved in and the books thread their way throughout the building, with a dedicated reading room and children’s den providing spaces for storytelling and imagination.
