Dick Whittington cast

If you’re looking for some inspiration for what’s happening in Chester & Cheshire this week, look no further as we have put together a selection of our top picks. From winter walks and pantomimes to live music and the story of a sporting legend, there’s plenty to keep you entertained across the county.

1. Continue the festivities with a Warrington panto

There’s still time to catch a panto this week as Dick Whittington runs until this Sunday (15 January) at Warrington’s Parr Hall. With all the costumes, comedy, catchy songs and calamities Parr Hall’s pantos have become renowned for, families are invited to join Dick Whittington and his cat in a quest to stop the wicked Queen Rat. With a cast led by Milkshake presenter Amy Thompson this show promises to be a lot of fun, oh yes it does!

2. Explore winter wildlife at Tatton Park

Wrap up warm and head to Tatton Park’s glorious Gardens as they play host to a terrific Winter Wildlife Trail. Have you ever wondered where hedgehogs scurry off to in the winter, where badgers like to snuggle up or where bluebottles hang out? Little explorers can follow the trail whilst getting hands on with nature with our nature rubbings and take a peep into their habitats they call home. It’s family adventure for everyone! Plus, Tatton Park are offering half price parkland entry with free access to the gardens during the week this winter until 10 February when you book online in advance – find out more here

    Amazing Post! Thank you for sharing these awesome things to do in Chesire. I hope this information will be helpful to many people who are planning to travel there. I am interested to visit these historical places on my next vacation. Actually, I am a first-year student at California State University. I often struggle to do my academic paper writing. Luckily Recently I checked this page https://edubirdie.org/edubirdie-legit/ and decided to take some academic writing support from Edubirdie that can help me to enhance my academic grades. My passion is traveling around the world and connecting with people from different cultures. I really appreciated the author for sharing these beautiful tour guides with us.
