Commenting on the event Andy Foster of Andy Foster Architects said “Chester hasn’t done anything like this before. It’s going to attract a lot of interest and a diverse audience. It will be important for the city and consequently the leader of the council, Cllr Samantha Dixon, and local MP Chris Mattheson have already confirmed their places”.
All Murmurations ticket holders will also be entered into a prize draw on 12 June to win one of two pairs of tickets to the Good Life Experience festival, 16-18 September in Wales.
RIBA are supporting this event through the provision of Local Initiative Funding (LIF) to the Cheshire Society of Architects.
