Outdoor Shakespeare – The Handlebards with The Tempest
Wednesday 24th Apr, 06:30pm
Earlybird Tickets £12 (on the door £18)

The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe.

Join their all-female troupe at on a return visit to The Fleece for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ’The Tempest’ like none other. In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.

And what’s the play about? Well – a shipwreck washes the court of Milan up onto a mysterious desert island, inhabited by magicians, sprites and monsters, where nothing is as it seems. There’s magic, musicality and mystery a plenty!

This is an outdoor production, in our lovely orchard so please dress for the weather!

Visit to find out more – we also have the all-male troupe here on 21 June with Much Ado About Nothing
