Europe's First Ever Pop Up Shakespeare's Theatre is now open in York.

More than 400 years ago the first audiences for Shakespeare's plays enjoyed an experience that was as intimate as it was exciting in London in the Globe Theatre.

Standing beside Clifford's Tower in York, Shakespeare's Rose Theatre has been constructed, inspired by the famous London Rose Playhouse. The Theatre in York combines state of the art scaffolding technology, corrugated iron and timber with the historic 13 sided design of a 16th century Shakespearean Theatre.

The Theatre can house an audience of 950 with 600 seated on three tiered balconies around an open roofed courtyard and standing room for 350 "groundings".

Outside the theatre there is the Shakespeare's Village showcasing the best of Yorkshire food and drink and an Elizabethan garden.

Four of William Shakespeare's greatest plays will be performed by two companies over a 10 week period; Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo and Juliet and Richard III.

The plays run until 2 September.

The performance schedule is available on:
