Award-Winning Pop-Up Shakespearean Theatre Returns for 2019

Pop-up Shakespearean theatre in York

Step back in time and experience Shakespeare as it was in his day, with bloody battles, comic mayhem, gruesome murders and grand oratory!

Following its highly acclaimed inaugural season in 2018, Shakespeare’s Pop-Up Rose Theatre will return again at the foot of Clifford’s Tower in the historic heart of York from 25 June to 1 September 2019. Last year it played to almost 80,000 people, earning awards for ‘Best Cultural Experience’ and ‘Best Attraction’.

Four new productions of William Shakespeare’s most popular plays – Hamlet, Henry V, The Tempest and Twelfth Night – will once again transport audiences to the thrilling, intimate atmosphere of an Elizabethan playhouse, with plenty of breath-taking, spine-tingling, heart-stopping moments.

Outside the theatre, visitors can experience a vibrant, free-to-enter Shakespearean village, offering the finest Yorkshire food and drinks from oak-framed, reed-thatched buildings, an array of ‘wagon’ entertainment, minstrels and a stunning Elizabethan garden with ornate box-edged beds of cottage flowers, roses and herbs.
