The HandleBards are back at Northumberlandia for a bicycle-powered, laugh-out-loud production of Shakespeare’s 'Twelfth Night'.

This year we are being visited by Handlebards' all boys troupe - cycling to and from venues and often using cycles in their performances their productions always get us in a spin...During the summer the troupe cycles across the UK with all of their set, props and costumes on the back of their bikes, covering over 1,000 miles and performing high quality Shakespearean productions in theatres and outdoor venues. In the winter months they travel to warmer climes, performing at international theatres and arts festivals.

And what’s the play about? Well – a young woman disguises herself as a man and becomes entangled in the courtship of two aristocrats - this tale upends conventions of romance and gender roles.

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! The performance will go ahead in most weather conditions so please bring waterproofs, no umbrellas though please.
