This week Pesto’s Picks takes a peek at the best of what’s on in Cheshire and the Wirral.
Throughout August and September, day and evening fixtures will take place at the UK’s oldest racing site, Chester Racecourse.
The site, which dates back to 1539, has hosted some of the most thrilling races in British sporting history and prides itself on offering “an unquestionably fun atmosphere’!

If horses aren’t fast enough for you, how does a day at Oulton Park Circuit sound? The HSCC Oulton Park Gold Cup takes place over three days from Saturday 24th – Monday 26th August.
This international competition is the North West’s most prestigious and historic racing event, attracting countless racing stars year after year.

Lastly we have the Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre hosted in the grounds of – yep, you guessed it – Grosvenor Park.
The uniquely horseshoe shaped theatre is surrounded by sycamore trees and a thick wall of holly, nestling the 320 seat venue away from the outside world to create a ‘secret garden’ effect.
Three productions are running throughout the summer; Shakespeare classics ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and ‘Othello’ in addition to the story of ample-beaked Cyrano de Bergerac, the infamous French dualist and dramatist.
The shows will run until August 25th, weekday shows begin at 7:30pm, Saturday shows are at 2:30pm and 7:30pm and Sunday shows are at 12pm and 4pm.
Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre is located a short distance from Pesto Italian Restaurants Tarporley and Pesto Dibbinsdale, Wirral, making both restaurants perfect for pre and post theatre meals.
