Pop-Up Shakespeare Theatre

Europe’s first ever pop-up Shakespearian theatre is coming to York this summer so don’t miss out on this unique opportunity when you stay at our York hotel. This is a dream experience for Shakespeare fans that don’t want to travel all the way to London to experience an authentic theatre experience of one of Shakespeare’s timeless plays. Inspired by the famous London Rose Playhouse built in 1587, Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre will emulate the design of a 16th century Shakespearian theatre complete with an open-roofed courtyard and standing room for ‘groundlings’. Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Nights Dream, Richard III and Macbeth are being performed throughout the summer from June 25th until 2nd September.

The Great Yorkshire Fringe

Don’t despair if you can’t make it to Edinburgh this summer because Yorkshire has its very own fringe festival, The Great Yorkshire Fringe, so you can enjoy music, theatre, cabaret and comedy in God’s country less than a 10-minute drive from our boutique York hotel. Immerse yourself in York’s vibrant culture and celebrate festival season in the heart of the city this summer from the 19th – 29th July 2018.

At one point Walmgate had 20 pubs on the street, today it is a cool mix of independent restaurants, bars and shops and continues to Fossgate – which boasts even more independent shops, delis, bars and restaurants.
