Street Food, A Bar And Juggling Jesters – York’s Shakespeare Village Unveiled

Cliffords Tower


From YorkMix.


With a little over 100 days to go before the first night, organisers of York’s pop-up Shakespeare theatre have revealed more details of what we can expect.

And there will be plenty to do in addition to enjoying some of the world’s greatest plays in an authentic setting.

As previously reported, Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre will be built close to Clifford’s Tower.

This “will combine state-of-the-art scaffolding technology, corrugated iron and timber with the historic 13-sided design of a 16th century Shakespearean theatre,” say the people behind the project, Lunchbox Theatrical Productions.

It will house an audience of 950, with 600 seated on three tiered balconies around an open-roofed courtyard and standing room for 350 ‘groundlings’.
