17 July 2021 - 21 July 2021

Join us in the gardens, walled gardens and rolling fields of the Pudlicote House, a quietly beautiful Georgian country house situated between Chipping Norton, Charlbury and Burford.

Pedalling from venue to venue with all of their set, props and costumes on the back of their bikes, the HandleBards are a four-strong troupe of actors who are spending the summer bringing environmentally sustainable Shakespeare to venues across the UK. Join the all-female troupe at Pudlicote House for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare's classic.

Forget the tears and tragedy - this is a frantic, delirious, full-of-beans show like you've never seen before.

Presented with the generous support of Pudlicote Farm and the Wickens Family.
