Ert Presents Time Travellers Theatre Trail App

Ever wondered where the first theatre was in Beverley? Or what popular entertainment looked like in the Middle Ages? Experience theatre like never before as ERT presents the Time Travellers’ Theatre Trail app.

The Time Travellers' Theatre Trail app is a FREE outdoor audio trail which allows listeners to travel into Beverley's past, meet local characters, and discover what the town's theatrical life really looked like in times gone by.

From the infamous wife sale in Saturday Market to the childhood home of feminist icon Mary Wollstonecraft, Beverley’s theatrical history is full of surprises!

Stopping off at 12 historic sites in the market town of Beverley, the app takes you on an expedition through time with actors Annie, Richard, Evie, Gordon and a host of historical figures, from Henry V to artist Mary Elwell.

Once the app has been downloaded, head to location 1 (North Bar) and the audio will begin. Then use the app to follow the trail to each location.

The trail is suitable for families and children aged 4+. For more information about the app and how to download it, visit the ERT website.

Time Travellers’ Theatre Trail Booklet

Test your knowledge! Why not try answering some fun questions along the way? Keep the family entertained by collecting one of ERT's Time Travellers’ Trail Booklets.

The trail booklet is available to collect for FREE at ERT.

Spot the Beverley Heard

The Beverley Heard was a community project which saw 10 local artists paint by hand a collection of cows inspired by the town’s beautiful surroundings. The finished designs were then installed in locations all around Beverley including cafes, shop windows, and one at ERT! Have you spotted any of the cows around Beverley?

When completing the Time Travellers' Theatre Trail see how many you can spot along the way!
