To Be Or Not To Be? Discover Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre in York this summer ... 
The historic city of York will host Europe’s first ever ‘pop-up’ Shakespearean theatre this summer (25th June to 2nd September). 
Over four centuries ago, audiences enjoyed the experience and excitement of William Shakespeare’s plays close at hand. This playwright went on to change the world of theatre forever. 
The theatrical stage during Shakespeare’s time was very different to today’s offering. Back then, watching a play was a crowded affair in a small space that placed the audience very close to the action. 
Whether you are a fan of Shakespeare or have maybe avoided his works as they seem difficult, then prepared to be wowed by the Shakespeare Rose Theatre next to York’s 13th century Clifford’s Tower in the very heart of the city. 
The pop up theatre is inspired by the London Rose Playhouse, built in 1587, twelve years before the world famous Globe Theatre. As well as referring back to the experience audiences would have had 400 years ago, York’s Rose Theatre will combine cutting edge scaffolding technology, included corrugated iron and timber in the 13-sided construction and will seat up to 950 guests. 
With the arrival of (a very late) spring, it’s time to think about the racing season at York. There’s no better location for putting on the gladrags and cracking open a bottle of chilled bubbly! 
The racing season at the Knavesmire begins with the Dante Festival from Wednesday 16th May. This popular event in includes the Betfred Dante on Thursday 17th May and concludes with the Yorkshire Cup on Friday 18th May. 
As this is the first race event ‘outing’ at York, there’ll be a buzz in the air and fresh grass for the horses to stretch out their legs and cover the furlongs. 
However, the Dante Festival is the first of many ‘meets’ of the social season.  
There are dates throughout the summer ... 
It’s that time of year again – the Tour de Yorkshire is set to return to parts of Ryedale. 
This year’s cycle race will be held over four days, commencing Thursday 3rd May and concluding on Sunday 6th May 2018. 
Stage Three which takes place on Saturday 5th May, is the one that will visit parts of Ryedale. The route follows a gruelling 181 km starting in Richmond and finishing in Scarborough. 
Following sprints in the Yorkshire Dales and trips through the market towns of Northallerton and Thirsk, the cyclists will head into the North York Moors National Park including the steep and curvaceous Cote de Sutton Bank, which as we know is bad enough if tackling it as a driver of a vehicle! 
Scarborough’s Open Air Theatre – the largest open-air venue of its kind in Europe – is revealing it’s incredible Summer 2018 line-up. 
And this fantastic venue is about 40-minute drive from the Malton or Pickering area – Station Taxis can take you door to door. 
Reopened by HM The Queen in 2010, the theatre, which is close to Scarborough's beautiful North Bay, has gradually expanded its programme and this year promises to be the best yet!
