HandleBards Blue Wheel Icon


Robin recently graduated from Drama Centre London, and was over the moon to put some fancy socks on and join the wonderful HandleBards team. With a background in theatre, comedy improv and music (as well as a fair bit of cycling), this tour was a little bit of a dream come true – not least because Much Ado has always been his favourite Shakespeare!


Credits whilst training include: Ferdinand in THE TEMPEST, Jack in THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, Charlie in POMONA (Drama Centre London) and Vanya in UNCLE VANYA (Vakhtangov Institute Moscow). He has also performed in two full runs of comedy improv shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

My Favourite Thing About The HandleBards:

The people. No, the bikes. No, the people. No, the bikes. Ah! It’s too hard. People on bikes.

If Shakespeare Was Alive Today:

I would take him to a HandleBards show… and then gently whisper into his ear, “Make of that ‘what you will’, Will.”

The Biggest Adventure I've Ever Had:

Hitching a ride for 25 hours from Jinja, Uganda to Nairobi, Kenya – by any means – most of the way with an obliging chicken as a travel pillow.
