Situated beside the iconic York landmark of Clifford’s Tower, the 13-sided Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre will offer a thrilling and intimate theatrical experience with plenty of breath-taking, spine-tingling, heart-stopping moments as four of William Shakespeare’s most popular plays – Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo & Juliet and Richard III - are performed during the 10-week Summer of Shakespeare, from Monday June 25 until Sunday September 2.

Outside Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre will be Shakespeare’s Village, a free to enter attraction that will feature a gourmet street food menu selected by Yorkshire celebrity chef Brian Turner, and an Elizabethan garden from award-winning garden designer Sally Tierney.

It will also present a regular schedule of ‘wagon entertainment’ with sensational speeches, soulful sonnets and medieval music, as well as juggling jesters.
