Course Description

Did Shakespeare ever visit York? And if he did... what would York have looked like through his eyes? We will investigate Shakespeare’s early life and the intriguing connections with the city of York and the King’s Manor. We will also explore Shakepeare’s York, including Margaret Clitherow, King James I’s visit to the city in 1603, and an intriguing case in 1609 where a performance of a Shakespearean play resulted in gentry closely associated with the city being imprisoned for treason! It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King's Manor.
