Chester Mystery Plays at Chester Cathedral

Once every five years the people of Chester create a completely new production of the greatest story ever told.

Don’t miss this epic theatrical spectacular staged in the stunning nave of Chester Cathedral. Biblical tales of love, death, betrayal and redemption performed by a cast of hundreds.

John Young (Romeo & Juliet – Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre 2022) will direct the 2023 Plays, with Chester’s own Matt Baker composing and directing the music.

Performances every day Monday to Saturday from Wednesday 28 June to Saturday 15 July, with a matinee each Saturday.
