The fantastic success of Chester's new


Through a £50 million enabling investment that has paved the way for Chester Northgate, Cheshire West & Chester Council has relocated the city's bus station to a state-of-the-art facility and created the Storyhouse cultural centre next to the Northgate site.

Now housed in a redevelopment of a former Art Deco Odeon cinema building are a world-class, 800-seat theatre, a 150-seat studio theatre, the city's library and a 100-seat arts cinema.

Highly successful from the moment it opened in May 2017, Storyhouse is already attracting more than ONE MILLION VISITORS a year!
