If you’re looking for events in Shrewsbury, then look no further, there’s an event calendar packed with something for everyone.

With an independent cinema in an old market hall, the 29-acre Quarry Park and an impressive theatre sitting upon the river, Shrewsbury is at the heart of cultural activities in Shropshire.

 

Our venues may be closed, but Shrewsbury is a hive of activity with events taking place virtually and across town.
