York Theatre Royal launched the UK’s first TakeOver Festival back in 2009 and invites audiences of all ages to its fresh and innovative festival. This year’s unique programmme centres on the ideas of returning to one’s roots, new beginnings and how Home intertwines itself within our everyday life.

It was set up to be an annual festival run entirely by 12- to 26-year-olds who, with support from York Theatre Royal staff, would programme, prepare and produce a festival of theatre and events. In the last six years, more than 700 young people have been involved in running brilliant and well-received festivals.
