The Handlebards: Macbeth @ Wellesley Woodlands

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 Wellesley Woodlands with West End Centre 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.

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

★★★★★ “Explodes with energy and is a genuine treat from start to finish” - The Stage, on the HandleBards’ Twelfth Night

Event: Friday 4 June, 7pm (6pm doors)

Tickets: £16 standard adult, £10 under 18s, £0 under 10 with every paying adult - please note that our Early Bird adult tickets have sold out

How it will work

We’ll be seating households and social bubbles at a social distance for the performance, in line with government regulations. Please make sure that booking is for your household/social bubble only. This will give us an idea of how many groups/picnics there will be on the day. If you want to book for someone else who isn’t in your household or social bubble please book their tickets as a new transaction.
