Three Chester events not to be missed this summer

Kayak trips in Chester are very popular during the summer months, but what are you to do when you’ve finished an exhilarating paddling session?

Here are three events taking place in Chester this summer that you might be interested in trying:

Hoot’s Route

Hoot’s Route is a great event for all the family to enjoy. Thirty previously unseen artefacts have been taken from the vaults of the city’s Grosvenor Museum and put on display in various locations around the city.

By following the route, not only will you be able to see some of these interesting objects, but you will also spend your time exploring the various areas of the historic city of Chester.

Artefacts waiting to be discovered include a medieval codex clasp, Roman kitchenware, and Edwardian wedding shoes.

You can download the Hoot’s Route trail map online at any time, or you can pick up a print copy at one of the participating businesses, which can all be found online.

Chester Unlocked

Chester Unlocked is another family friendly event taking place over the summer. In conjunction with Hoot’s Route, this event aims to bring some of Chester’s history to life once more. Chester Unlocked will bring a number of unique heritage events to the city, including family crafting, Victorian fashion shows, and Roman wine tasting. Check online to find out which events are happening when you’re in Chester.

Moonlight Flicks

Taking in a film is a great end to an active night paddling on the river, but it is even better when the film is being shown outdoors.

Moonlight Flicks is an outdoor cinema event that takes place in Chester Roman Gardens over the summer. Films to be shown this year include cult classics like ‘Drive’ and ‘The Big Lebowski’, as well as the classic Marilyn Monroe movie ‘Some Like it Hot’.
