August 3rd, 2016 Press Release!

Chester Merchants Press Release



How's your well? Eating off paper plates yet? Reverting to the Victorian age and topping up on the perfume?
Get your pail and shovel out and head to the beach. Lots of water there.
These are the summer temperatures we've been waiting for since February.

The Chester Arts Centre garden party last night was a resounding success. Nothing like a little Taylor Swift to "Shake it Off." Congratulations to the organizers - you can breathe now.

This Week in Chester 

Tonight, Wednesday, is the opening of "Bohemians in Brooklyn" at the Chester Playhouse. Join the cast in a story of four artists who lived together in New York in the early 1940s. When a poet, author, composer and his lover, and a book-loving stripper all move into the same house you'll find arguments, indulgence, infestation, questionable relationships, a murder mystery, and plenty of reasons for the neighbours be pissed off. This show is a potent mix of cabaret, social history, juicy gossip and glorious music. The curtain goes up at 8 pm every night until Saturday with a 2 pm matinee on Saturday.

Tomorrow night, Thursday, is Poppy Balser's opening at Amicus Gallery on a very Pleasant Street from 6-8pm. Get the Nantucket reds and your whale belt out and get over there. Be prompt as Poppy is popular.

The Chester Farmers' and Artisan Market was a mad house last week! Oh la la ! Get to the old train station early on Friday to ensure you are first in line. The market opens at 10 am and goes until 2 pm or until they run out.

The Chester Classics Regatta is on this weekend in the bay. Drop by the Rope Loft and install yourself with a festive caesar on the deck and watch those beauties race around the course.

The weekend will wrap up with the Chester Brass Band performing at the bandstand due west of the CYC starting at 7pm. We are fortunate to have this Sunday series of music, so please get out and support it.

Next Tuesday Picnic in the Park presents "Short Notice" sponsored by Access Storage from 6-8 pm at Lordly Park.

Sales Beacon of Chester has literally created the framework for "Picnic in the Park"  this summer.
Formerly Mdina, Sales Beacon donated the money to rebuild the gazebo so the talent wouldn't fall through the floor. A big thank you to this team for keeping the fun family night and our entertainers alive.

The gloves are coming off. Next week is Chester Race Week which runs from Wednesday until last man standing. Get your party flag out and get some sleep this week. You're going to need it. Remember, it's a marathon, not a race.
