With the big day behind us, we may have some much-needed spare time: a perfect opportunity to get out and about in Chester. The festivities don’t have to stop between Christmas and New Year's in Chester. There’s a lot going on this Twixmas in the city including spectacular shows, sumptuous dining, fascinating history, indulgent spa escapes, and, of course, those Boxing Day deals.

This Twixmas is the perfect opportunity to catch Storyhouse’s Cinderella. Filled with pop favourites and magical moments, this festive show will boost your spirits in between the seasonal celebrations.  

Keep the celebrations going with the Christmas Tree Festival 

Christmas Tree Festival

Tree looking a little tired? Don’t worry there’s still plenty of time to visit Chester Cathedral’s much-loved Christmas Tree Festival. Running until the 6th of January you can still catch all the magic of these fully-decked trees and continue the celebrations.

Treat yourself to a spot of tea
