Win two tickets to Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre in York

Win two tickets to Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre in York, valid from Monday-Thursday.

Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Richard III will be performed in a pop-up replica Shakespearean theatre in York this summer (June 25-September 2).

It will be Europe’s first pop-up Shakespearean theatre and will form part of the ‘Summer of Shakespeare’ in the city.

Visitors can also enjoy free entry to Shakespeare’s Village, with local food and drink as well as ‘wagon’ entertainment with jugglers and musicians.

Yorkshire-born celebrity chef Brian Turner is creating a special street food menu and Yorkshire garden designer Sally Tierney will create an Elizabethan garden.

James Cundall, chief executive of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, said: “More than 400 years ago, the first audiences for Shakespeare’s plays enjoyed an experience that was as intimate as it was exciting, crowded in close to the actors and the action.

“An experience every bit as exciting, intimate and immersive will be offered to today’s audiences in a dramatic playhouse setting beside the iconic 13th century Clifford’s Tower.

“With dramatic sword-fights, bubbling cauldrons, wayward fairies, passionate love scenes, gruesome murders, grand poetry and no shortage of fake blood, audiences will experience the comic heights and tragic depths of Shakespearean theatre in a memorable setting.”
