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.

Celebrate Shrewsbury’s most famous son at this year’s virtual DarwIN Shrewsbury Festival. Join us as we celebrate our special links with Charles Darwin with a schedule of inspiring films, brain-teasing lectures, Q&A sessions and Darwin's birthday toast. 

Feature

Scooped in the loop of the River Severn, Shrewsbury is a town oozing with history. Whether from the comfort of your home, whilst out and about or commuting, be transported to the heart of Shrewsbury with the new SO Stories audio tours. 

Feature

The oldest stained glass in Shrewsbury, the Jesse Window was made for Greyfriars chapel in the 14th century. Following the dissolution of the friary in 1538, the window was moved to St Chad's, before being bought to St Mary's in 1791. Now you can explore it with Google Arts and Culture.
