It was back in May when we first revealed it might be coming.
And now it has been confirmed that a pop-up Shakespearean theatre is heading to York.
In the first project of its kind in a European city, a recreation of the 16th century Rose Theatre, which was a forerunner to the Globe, will be built next to Clifford’s Tower.
The idea of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, which is based in Welburn north of York, the temporary construction could run a ten-week season of plays from next June.
These would include a production of Richard III, featuring York’s favourite dead king.

The three other plays in the season are Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Romeo and Juliet.
