Win VIP tickets and step back in time to experience Shakespeare as it was in his day, in a stunning pop-up Elizabethan theatre in the historic city of York this summer.
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.
The Express has two pairs of VIP tickets to give away to the performance of Richard III on Tuesday July 3 at 7.30pm.
