Information for the Royal Visit

Events, News, Chester

06th Jun 2018

You may have already seen it in the press and we can confirm it is official; the Queen is coming to Northgate Street!


Next Thursday (14th June) our partners at the Storyhouse are welcoming Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Meghan Markle Duchess of Sussex to officially open the building in a short ceremony around mid-day (exact times unknown.)

As we’re official sponsors of the Storyhouse our lucky MD Les Owens has been invited to attend the event personally, so we’ll be eagerly anticipating his return! The rest of us will also be celebrating at The Coach House; the bunting will be out, the Bucks Fizz ready and we’ll be looking out of the windows in anticipation of catching a glimpse of the Royals.

For anyone looking to join us for breakfast or lunch, we advise you to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment; it should be noted that we’ll be opening a bit earlier at 9am for those who are particularly eager.


To celebrate the event, we’re going to be holding a competition on Facebook for a chance to win 4 tickets to your choice of one of the following shows at The Storyhouse;

  • The Crucible
  • Swallows & Amazons (including the open-air theatre)
  • A Little Night Music
  • The Tempest (including the open-air theatre)
  • Much Ado About Nothing (including the open-air theatre)
