Chester Zoo wedding venue to open next year

13 April 2022

Approval has been granted for Chester Zoo's new wedding and events venue, which is now expected to open in Summer 2023.

The new 380-capacity venue makes use of the existing stables complex, which were previously used for storage, offices and workshops, alongside an additional new extension to the complex.

Dom Strange, commercial director at Chester Zoo, said: "As a major wildlife charity that’s working to prevent extinction, having a new, premier wedding and events space will enable us to raise additional income that will help us to fund yet more vital conservation initiatives in the UK and across the world, making a real difference to the future of threatened species globally.

"The Stables is a beautiful Grade II listed building – it’s the very place where the story of Chester Zoo began nearly 91 years ago."
