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-male troupe in the atmospheric setting of Lyveden for a bicycle-powered production like none other of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. In typical HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter when a group of soldiers returns from the war to a household in Messina causing the kindling of new love interests and the re-kindling of old rivalries. There’s plotting, frivolity and cross-dressing a plenty.

This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!

We perform whatever the weather: a performance will only be cancelled on Health & Safety grounds, judgement of which lies with the event management team on the day.

Performance ends at approximately 8.30pm
