Storyhouse: Venue Support –

Helping to develop pop-up film events in Chester and expand the already established open air cinema project Moonlight Flicks across Cheshire.

    Storyhouse is the new name of Chester Performs – the award winning producer of Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre, the city’s music & literature festivals, the young persons’ festival Wayword, and open air cinema season Moonlight Flicks. Storyhouse is also the name of Chester’s new £37m cultural centre, which the company will operate when it opens later this year.

    With Film Hub North West Central venue support in 2016/17 – Storyhouse developed pop-up film events in advance of their new building opening, including extended programming in new locations for Moonlight Flicks, a dedicated film week for families supported by activities, literature and film events as part of the company’s annual literature festival, and screenings with live music. Storyhouse is also developing a young persons engagement strategy for film in the new centre.
