Family-friendly events and attractions in Cheshire in late August

We know that when you’re planning canoe trips in Chester, not only do you want to know what canoeing opportunities there will be on the River Dee, but you also want to know what other activities you can indulge in throughout the region. This is why we have put together this great list of things you can do when you visit Chester and the surrounding area from 20th August.

Deva Codex: Boar Quest

Running throughout August, Deva Codex: Boar Quest is one of the city’s most exciting attractions this year. Family-friendly, this mystery quest could net you a cool £300 to spend in Chester city centre. All you need to do is visit one of the city’s participating stores to collect a free event bag. In this bag you will find various tools to help you on your quest, including a map, which you and your family can use to take a tour around Chester, solving codes, riddles, and puzzles along the way.

The Just So Festival

Taking place in Congleton from August 21st, The Just So Festival is a great event, which enables families to spend some quality time together camping and creating. Activities at the festival include music, theatre, art, and exploration.

Beeston Castle’s Clash of Knights

On Sunday August 23rd, Beeston Castle will mark the last day of its summer events by holding a spectacular Clash of Knight’s event, which will see four teams of knights, fully outfitted in medieval garb, compete in a series of historically accurate challenges.

There will also be a number of medieval character actors in the grounds, who visitors will be able to engage with as and when they bump into them, along with a number of opportunities for children to get involved in mini-battles of their own.
