Lecture – Hearing the Mystery Plays

For this fascinating lecture Dr Mariana Lopez has digitally recreated the soundscape of the medieval playing stations and, using special recordings of the text, enables us to perhaps hear the Plays as the citizens of York heard them centuries ago.

A digital sound and video installation will be in All Saints Church, Pavement from Tuesday 15th July to Saturday 19th July, 10am-4pm. Admission Free.

The York Waits & Deborah Catterall – ‘The White Rose & The Red’

As a fantastic finale to our festival, a concert of Music from the age of Richard III.
“We will unite the white rose and the red,” proclaims the Earl of Richmond – shortly to be crowned Henry VII – at the conclusion of Shakespeare’s Richard III… The 15th century was a great age of song and this concert includes some of the best examples from the period.
