Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre offers a very different and exciting opportunity for entertaining clients and staff, so we have created ‘The York Experience’ as a ‘premium’ package, where you can enjoy the best seats in the house, right beside the stage, putting you at the heart of the drama.


The York Experience

  • - Two boxes of 16 seats (or four of eight seats) are exclusively available for corporate bookings and private parties. Reservations can be made for 2 to 32 people.
  • - There is a private area within the theatre for entertaining guests pre-show and during the interval, for your exclusive use.
  • - Ticket price includes champagne or wine (half bottle per person), beer or soft drinks, as well as canapes and ice cream, before the show and again during the interval.
  • - After the performance you will be given an exclusive backstage tour.
  • - Cost is £90 per ticket.
  • - These performances are booked through our office at Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, with no additional fees.
  • - A 50% deposit will be taken upon booking, with final payment made six weeks before the performance.

We can cater for larger groups. If you have more than 32 people in your party, please contact us on the number or email below for further information.

We also have a number of sponsorship opportunities available to companies of all sizes, providing you with publicity and marketing leverage to an anticipated audience of 200,000 during the season.

We do hope we will be able to welcome you and your party to a unique and thrilling experience at Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre this summer.


The Rose Bursary Scheme

In addition, we have created a schools legacy programme, called The Rose Bursary Scheme, which enables schools who would not otherwise be able to visit Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre, to apply for free tickets. For every £10 donated, a child can experience Shakespeare in the exciting, intimate space for which it was written. We would welcome donations of any amount, which will be recognised in the official programme.

If you would like to be involved and be a donor to The Rose Bursary Scheme, please feel free to call Chloe Barr at Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, organisers of Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre, on 01653 619169, or email us at
