Just when you think you’ve done everything there is to do in York, someone comes along with something completely different. This Saturday 16th September, head to the city walls for a one-of-a-kind performance trail to promote this year’s York Theatre Royal TakeOver Festival, run by 12 to 26 year olds. Featuring new and emerging artists and performers at various stations throughout the Monkbar to Bootham Bar stretch of the walls with 10-15 minute shows throughout the afternoon, it promises to be a fun taster of what’s happening at the rest of the festival.The Festival itself runs from 23rd to 28th October.
Pick up one of the postcard maps and follow the trail all the way along the walls and back to York Theatre Royal, where you’ll find more performances and fun for all the family! There are some fun events at this year’s TakeOver Festival for families, so take a look at the website for more details.
