My Favourite Thing About The HandleBards:

The way they incorporate two of my favourite things, performing and adventure.

If Shakespeare Was Alive Today:

I’d invite him round to dinner and play lots of party games to break the ice. I’d then ask him to write a play about my life…so far…

The Biggest Adventure I've Ever Had:

So far…has to be my 63 night expedition across the Arctic Circle. We camped and carried all our equipment in a pulk and cross country skied across the solid ice. We climbed mountains and did scientific research into global climate change. We didn’t have a shower or use a toilet for 63 days, I therefore now like to class myself as an Arctic Goddess for surviving the adventure!
