About Refresh

Refresh brings together the cultural programme of the Chester High Street Heritage Action Zone (CHS HAZ) which is funded by Historic England and covers the area around the Rows, and a ‘Reopening and Recovery’ programme for Chester, funded by the Government’s Additional Restrictions Grant to Cheshire West and Chester Council.

The activities for the CHS HAZ Cultural Programme and Reopening and Recovery are overseen by a consortium that includes Chester Pride, University of Chester, Storyhouse, St Mary’s Creative Space, Theatre in the Quarter, Open Eye Gallery and Cheshire West & Chester.

About High Streets Heritage Action Zones

Historic England is working with local people and partners through grant funding and sharing skills to help breathe new life into high streets that are rich in heritage and full of promise. The High Streets Heritage Action Zones scheme, backed by government funding, aims to help with the recovery of local high streets from regenerating historic buildings to helping engage local communities through art and cultural projects.
