About this event
Follow in the footsteps of Chester people from the past – some real, some imagined – in this outdoor trail through the Rows. Short, vivid, first person monologues are performed by Chester residents, ordinary folk who bring the past alive for us today.
Eavesdrop on the last woman to be burnt at the stake in Chester as she embarks on her grisly business; feel the pain of those who lived through the civil war and the siege of Chester; watch as the visit of a prime minister inspires a suffragette to act…
Hear the echoes of their voices through the ages. Fleeting moments in ordinary lives. Stand by as the Rows give up their secrets.
These monologues have all been created by everyday people from Chester at writing workshops with actor, director and writer Janys Chambers.
Set off from Eastgate Clock Tower at 2.30pm. The trail should last approx. 90 minutes and will end on Northgate Street by H Samuel. Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather!
