Looking for things to do with the kids in Chester? Why not enjoy a visit to Storyhouse? Storyhouse is located in the heart of Chester and is an amazing cultural hub of activity for children and adults alike.
Storyhouse is a library, theatre, cinema, community hub, cultural centre and restaurant.
Regular activities for children include under 5’s storytime, and under 1’s rhymetime. The family Saturday and Sundays cinema showings are ideal option on a rainy day and children can be entertained from 11am with a free Arts and Crafts session, which normally compliments the film that some of the children would have just watched. There are also a number of preschool groups and classes hosted here, provided by independent businesses located in and around Chester.
The organisation also houses a nationally-acclaimed theatre company with home-produced stage shows each year, including the first ever version of Enid Blyton’s The Secret Seven and who can forget when Zog graced the big screen! Storyhouse also founded and runs the country’s most successful regional open-air theatre company, Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre, showcasing key performances in the city’s main park (Grosvenor Park), and an open-air cinema, Moonlight Flicks.
The library within Storyhouse, is ideal for our young reader. Children young and old will love a trip to the reading den, where they can get lost in a range of other worlds and adventures.
As you can see, Storyhouse provides something for everyone, and so is the perfect choice for a day out with the kids in Chester.
