From YorkMix.


We all know about the plays (Macbeth = bloodbath, Romeo & Juliet = don’t buy your wedding outfit).

But what about Shakespeare’s Village? This is the part of York’s pioneering pop-up theatre that everyone can enjoy, whether or not you have a ticket to the four plays inside.

The village – found next to Clifford’s Tower in the Castle car park – is kind of a modern recreation of the street food and entertainment from Will’s days. It’s free to go in – so what’s there?

Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre has enlisted the help of Yorkshire chef Brian Turner to put together a feast of food and drink.

Visitors are served food from Tudor-style, oak-framed and reed-thatched huts, and can gorge themselves on typical Elizabethan grub such as popcorn – a rumoured favourite of Shakespeare himself !
