The Handlebards - Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'

  • Alex Moulton Charitable Trust The Hall Bradford-on-Avon BA15 1AJ United Kingdom (map)

The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, are coming to The Hall, Bradford on Avon, on Thursday 12th September 2019.

Join their 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.

And what’s the play about? Well - 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. There’s magic, musicality and mystery a plenty!

The HandleBards pedal from venue to venue on handmade Pashley bikes with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe.

This is an outdoor production, set in the landscaped grounds of The Hall, a Jacobean mansion in the heart of Bradford on Avon. Please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather! Early Bird discounts are available, so book your tickets for this fabulous event now!
