Bamburgh Castle

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

 August 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm UTC+0 - 9:00 pm


Tickets and more information about this performance can be found by calling 01668 214208 or by clicking here.

Join us in the atmospheric grounds of Bamburgh Castle for our all-male, bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream!

Four young lovers find themselves enveloped in the dream-like arms of a magical forest full of sprites, where a feuding Fairy King and Queen are at war over the possession of an Indian boy. A group of amateur actors share the same forest. They’re rehearsing for a play. Fairies and humans collide. Hilarity ensues.

In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.

Notes on Performance

  • Doors open at 6pm, so why not bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings before the show?
  • Chairs, picnics, blankets and any other low level accessories are welcome.
  • In case of rain, please don’t bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching anyway, so please wear these instead!
