The Voices of CLIFFORDS TOWER

with ENGLISH HERITAGE

Gobbledegook Theatre are working with English Heritage to bring the stories of York's iconic Clifford's Tower to life. As part of the new exciting re-interpretation of the visitor experience at Clifford’s Tower, we are asking the people of York to give their voices to the fictional characters we have created to tell some of the events associated with one of the city’s most iconic places. 

In January 2021 we issued an open call for five local residents with distinctive voices who could passionately and enthrallingly portray a person who once inhabited York and was associated with Clifford’s Tower. People were invited to produce a one minute audition recording, captured via smartphone or computer and submitted to us before 31 January 2021.
