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 beautiful gardens of Strawberry Hill House for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’ 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 – Duke Orsino is in love with Lady Olivia, but she won’t have anything to do with suitors. Viola is shipwrecked and believes her twin brother Sebastian to be dead. Meanwhile, a bunch of Olivia’s servants plot to make a fool out of her pompous Butler, Malvolio. There’s drunkenness, frivolity and cross-dressing a plenty.

Tickets only FREE Meet the Curator Strawberry Hill House Curators talk: Finding the lost treasures

Meet a curator of the Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill Exhibition, and discover how she tracked down Masterpieces from Horace Walpole's Collection.

You will learn about a once in a lifetime exhibition which brings back to Strawberry Hill some of the most important masterpieces in Horace Walpole’s famous and unique collection. Horace Walpole’s collection was one of the most important of the 18th century, but was dispersed in a great sale in 1842. For the first time in over 170 years, Strawberry Hill can be seen as Walpole conceived it, with the collection in the interiors as he designed it, shown in their original positions. During the talk, there will be an opportunity to see one of the treasures that will be exhibited in the forthcoming exhibition.

Tickets only FREE Gothic Book Club: 'Child of God' by Cormak McCarthy In the spirit of Walpole’s original Gothic novel, regular meetings of the Gothic Book Club explore some of the seminal texts of Gothic literature

Set in mountainous Sevier CountyTennessee, in the 1960s, Child of God tells the story of Lester Ballard, a dispossessed, violent man whom the narrator describes as "a child of God much like yourself perhaps." Ballard's life is a disastrous attempt to exist outside the social order. Successively deprived of parents and homes and with few other ties, Ballard descends literally and figuratively to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation.

Tickets only FREE Visiting the Jewish Gentry Those already familiar with Strawberry Hill House may be surprised to discover that this world-famous symbol of English Gothic architecture has even stronger Jewish associations....

Those already familiar with Strawberry Hill House may be surprised to discover that this world-famous symbol of English Gothic architecture has even stronger Jewish associations. Understandably enough, Strawberry Hill is primarily associated with Sir Horace Walpole, the man who built it. Yet in the 19th century it had not one but two ‘Jewish’ owners: Frances Countess of Waldegrave, whose father John Braham was an internationally famous opera singer whose career began when he was talent-spotted as a street-urchin and invited to train as a chazan; and the fabulously wealthy de Stern family, a typical fin-de-siècle dynasty of international Jewish bankers.

 

The Sterns were certainly more conventionally Jewish than Frances Braham, the Christian daughter of a man who eventually abandoned the faith that had given him a start in life. Yet contemporaries referred to this famous beauty and glamorous society hostess as “the Jewish Lady Waldegrave”.

Like her great friend Benjamin Disraeli, she chose to play up to her Jewish background, commissioning a painting of Masada by Edward Lear to match another one of Jerusalem. Both hung at Strawberry Hill, where visitors on September 16 will be able to learn a little more about Frances Braham and Lady de Stern.

There will be short talks at 12 and 3pm.  The exhibition is free for anyone who buys a ticket to visit the house.
