The Chester Living History Fayre 

Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th August 

St John's Church, Vicar's Lane, Chester, CH1 1SN
 
Event description:
Chester Living History is a part of the St. John’s Project and is an exciting and innovative approach to promoting, preserving and portraying, the many and varied chapters that make up the story that is St. John’s Church, the city of Chester and beyond.
It was formally established in 2009, as a collaboration of several local re-enactors from across a wide range of historical periods that were interested in helping the Church in its task of restoring St. John’s to its former glory. The resulting idea that came from this was Chester Living History.
Today, this multi-period LH Group has over forty members, some of whom live well beyond the city’s boundaries, such has been the drawing power of the Church and its surroundings as a venue for the several events it runs and/or takes part in each year.
The biggest example of this is the now annual International Living History and Heritage Fayre which this year takes place on Saturday and Sunday, 4th and 5th of August in the Church, its grounds and also in part of the neighbouring Grosvenor Park.
