A unique opportunity to spend some time in the depths of the Castle Museum.

Pilot theatre invite you to follow the stories of characters drawn from myth and reality, past and present; on their journeys connecting to the prison cells.

There will be family workshops and artistic responses inspired by graffiti and poetry taken from the prison cell walls. VESP#05 will be part of this year’s Illuminating York. Food will also be provided to fuel hungry festival-goers.

VESP#05 Partners: Pilot Theatre and York Museums Trust
