York Festival Trust and York’s Guilds and Companies were once again the driving force behind a new production of the city’s internationally renowned medieval Plays in July 2014. The 2014 production filled the city streets with drama and spectacle offering a truly unique experience for visitor and local alike.
We provide a present day link to the medieval origins of these Plays. Staged on pageant waggons, this city wide event saw 12 plays performed at 4 locations and involved around 600 local volunteers in its production.
Since 1998 our quadrennial productions have allowed local people to become engaged with their history to create performances which have met with popular, critical and academic acclaim.
