Prices Between £10.00 to £16.00 The HandleBards present 'Much Ado About Nothing' - 8th September The HandleBards present 'Much Ado About Nothing'

Performance starts at 7pm

Doors open at 6pm

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 at Strawberry Hill House & Garden for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ’Much Ado About Nothing’ like no 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 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. The parallel love stories of Beatrice, Benedick, Claudio, and Hero become entangled with plotting, frivolity and melodrama in Shakespeare’s famous comedy.

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!

Notes on Performance

  • Doors open at 6pm, so bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
  • 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, so please wear these instead.
