Celebration of Chester


Standing outside Chester Town Hall is a 16 foot high statue known as the Celebration of Chester produce by the artist Stephen Broadbent. There are a couple of his other pu8blic works of art in my archive The Seed and Liverpool Connections.

Celebration of Chester was unveiled in Chester Town Hall Square in September 1992, as part of the 900th anniversary celebrations of Chester Cathedral.

The grey and red sandstone, Gothic style Town Hall, with its tower and spire rising to a height of 160 feet was completed in 1869. It was opened on October 15th that year by the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII.
