Donate to The HandleBards.

 

Thank you for keeping our workshops free!

Your efforts and generous gifts mean we hit the initial 10k target to make sure we can tour next year with Comedy of Errors and Macbeth. Thank you. And look out for us!

You then raised an additional 2.5k which allowed us to continue hosting workshops for adults and children for free during lockdown. Thank you. Your generosity is truly appreciated.

And then this summer you raised a whopping 6k for the HandleBards Creative Fund, to help financially support HandleBards actors and creatives who lost work due to COVID-19.  

Any further donations will now go towards our 2021 Education Programme through which we hope to provide a robust online workshop programme for 6 months of the year!

When you donate, please remember to leave us a story, tell us about your favourite memory that you’ve shared with us over the years. And share your favourite photos with us through Facebook or Instagram.

 

Take care and thanks again for your continued support!

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows The HandleBards to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to The HandleBards we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like The HandleBards to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that The HandleBards will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When The HandleBards receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Thanks to The Handlebards for keeping Shakespeare alive, albeit in your own quirky fashion, during these very difficult times. Looking foward to dates for shows in St Albans or thereabouts in 2021. Keep safe. Tricia Radley.

The best thing about lockdown for my 10 year old Shakespeare fan, who also loves silly dancing. Thank you Handlebards. You should be employed by schools to motivate all children!

Dear Handlebards,
we had sooo much fun watching the female handlebards at the Shakespeare Festival in Neuss (Germany) with "The Tempest" and singing "Hey Prospera, show us some magic!" together.
This was such a great show.
Thanks a million for that!
Kind regards,
Iris and Monika
