Sir Thomas Herbert House, 14 Pavement, York, YO1 9UP

The Dogrose is a new pop-up space for this year’s festival. Nestled in the attic above the York Gin shop, the Dogrose showcases emerging and alternative takes on Shakespeare from York and further afield. Hidden in the rafters of Thomas Herbert House, the Dogrose will play host to alchemists, fairies and dying kings, with events that mix music, comedy and performance to surprise and entertain you.
