Open Air Shakespeare & Shakespeare on a Bike – June 2 and June 28

Helen Light

You loved the Handlebards outdoor Shakespeare performance
of Twelfth Night last year, so this year we ve invited
them back twice! Their all-female troupe will be
performing The Tempest on Sunday 2nd June and their all-
male troupe will be performing Much Ado About Nothing on
Friday 28th June.

The Handlebards

Since 2013, the HandleBards have clocked-up over 7000
miles by cycling around the world to perform Shakespeare.
Described by none other than Sir Ian McKellen as
uproariously funny , they set the world on wheels with
our unique brand of extremely energetic, charmingly
chaotic, environmentally friendly cycle-powered theatre.

Join the all-female troupe for a bicycle-powered
production of Shakespeare s  The Tempest  like none
other. In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts
of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of
laughter.

The Tempest

A shipwreck washes the court of Milan up onto a
mysterious desert island, inhabited by magicians, sprites
and monsters, where nothing is as it seems

This show will be performed outdoors, so please bring
your own chair or blanket to sit on and dress for the
weather! There will be onsite catering to purchase drinks
and hot food.
