Residents and visitors celebrating Her Majesty the Queen and Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex’s visit to Chester tomorrow (Thursday 14th June) are being encouraged to stop by Chester Market.
Traders will be marking the occasion with bunting, live music, themed food and special offers.
Stalls open from 9.15am and from 10am there will be live music hosted by Intuneative.
Visitors will also be able to pick up British-themed goods to show support for the special day.
Cllr Brian Clarke commented: “If you fancy a spot of lunch, or indeed an early tea, then there is a range of great food on offer at Chester market, including award-winning pizza, street food, and Thai, which can all be enjoyed in the new food court seating area.”
Those parking in the Market Car Park can take advantage of £1 off by visiting the market and scanning their car park ticket to receive the discount.
Cllr Clarke added: “There’s no need to rush off when the royals have left, Chester Market will still be open to peruse everything it has to offer, from haircuts to hair extensions, from books to fishmongers. There is nowhere else in Chester with such a variety under one roof.”
Many of the car parks in the city are expected to be busier than normal on Thursday, and visitors are being urged to use public transport or the council’s park and ride services which will run as usual throughout the day, offering a quick and convenient route into Chester.
Thursday also marks the one year anniversary of the Grenfell Tower disaster. To remember those who died a minute’s silence will be held across the country at midday.
A siren will sound across Town Hall Square at noon to begin the minute’s silence and again to mark the end of the silence.
Chester Market is located within The Forum Shopping Centre, with access off Town Hall Square and Princess Street.
