York’s Walls Were Overrun By White-Bearded Wizards. This Is Why.



From YorkMix.


No, it wasn’t a Dumbledore convention. Or a gathering of the Lord Of The Rings reenactment society.

So why were there wizards on York walls this weekend, you ask? Let me spell it out!

If you crossed the city walls on Saturday afternoon (September 16), you most likely passed a selection not only of weird but wonderful wizards but also very pink travel agents and inspiring storytellers.

It’s because this year’s TakeOver team from York Theatre Royal transformed the old fortifications into a multipurpose stage for its wonderful performers.

They occupied five different stations, stretching the walls to promote the TakeOver Festival, which runs from October 23-28 at York Theatre Royal.

“The idea behind the postcard trail was to help publicise the main festival in October by bringing performance out to the people of York,” said Katie Smith, artistic director of TakeOver Festival.
