"Explodes with energy, a genuine treat from start to finish."
We are the HandleBards: cycling Shakespearean actors who carry all of our set, props and costumes on the back of our bikes, performing extremely energetic, charmingly chaotic and environmentally sustainable Shakespeare plays across the UK. We specialise in open air theatre, but we’re really happy performing anywhere: theatres, castles, gardens, bicycle shops, pub gardens and schools. You name it, we’ve probably performed there!
Tickets are now on sale for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which we’re cycling to outdoor venues across the UK in 2023, and Much Ado About Nothing, which we’re bringing to indoor theatres throughout the year.
Ride on dear friends.

Consistently hilarious…crackers and cracking!
I have never seen a version as outrageous, or as uproariously funny.
