A shrewsbury original since
800AD

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.

The weather may be cooling but Shrewsbury's calendar is still bursting with activity. Experience original events from Shrewsbury Chocolate Festival to Shrewsbury Festival of Literature, and not forgetting our seasonal Christmas celebrations.
