St. Mary's Centre, St. Mary's Hill, CHESTER

A Chester Festival event

St. Mary's was originally one of Chester's seven medieval parish churches. Much of the building dates from the 14th Century and some (restored) original furnishings are retained. Inside are the painted tombs of wealthy local families; outside, in the churchyard, the graves of prisoners executed in the Castle, which is situated next door. Three Cheshire witches who were hanged in 1656 are buried in a corner.

John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, took refuge in St. Mary's when his preaching met with violent opposition from the locals.

The building is now used as an arts centre run by Cheshire County Council.

Chester Festival is programmed by Andrew Burn, who also manages the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
