‘At Home in our City’ is the theme chosen by the Chester City of Sanctuary Group to celebrate refugee Week 2024.

The City of Sanctuary is a charity working to foster a welcome for those forced to leave their homes through violence or persecution.

We invite you to come along to the Cathedral grounds, off St Werburgh Street, where we hope to cover our gazebo with ideas of home and welcome. There will be paintings and poems by refugees, a quiz and more!

Additionally groups across Chester are organising events and activities throughout the week.

This year, whilst celebrating home, we can act in solidarity to ensure all who find themselves here feel safe, welcome and ‘at home in our city’.

Sunday 16 June: 10am to 4pm

Monday 17 -Thursday 21 June: 11am to 3pm
