The theatre festival will run during week seven and is a necessity if you are looking to add a splash of culture to your end of term alcohol fuelled festivities. One of the festival’s producers Posy told The York Tab: “On The Horizon Theatre Festival will showcase exciting and emerging talent, with a week’s worth of plays, events and speakers, this theatre festival is not to be missed”.

The festival will showcase each play twice and topics cover everything from fencing (which took A LOT of practice) to plane crashes, and even the toxic relationship trope of Ross and Rachel.


Tickets can be bought here for each performance. More information about the festival can be found on Instagram and Twitter @onthehorizontf.
