  • Amersham News Views and Information News Feed: Open Air Shakespeare & Shakespeare on a Bike – June 2 and June 28

    Helen Light

    You loved the Handlebards outdoor Shakespeare performance
    of Twelfth Night last year, so this year we ve invited
    them back twice! Their all-female troupe will be
    performing The Tempest on Sunday 2nd June and their all-
    male troupe will be performing Much Ado About Nothing on
    Friday 28th June.

    The Handlebards

    Since 2013, the HandleBards have clocked-up over 7000
    miles by cycling around the world to perform Shakespeare.
    Described by none other than Sir Ian McKellen as
    uproariously funny , they set the world on wheels with
    our unique brand of extremely energetic, charmingly
    chaotic, environmentally friendly cycle-powered theatre.

    Join the all-female troupe for a bicycle-powered
    production of Shakespeare s  The Tempest  like none
    other. In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts
    of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of
    laughter.

    The Tempest

    A shipwreck washes the court of Milan up onto a
    mysterious desert island, inhabited by magicians, sprites
    and monsters, where nothing is as it seems

    This show will be performed outdoors, so please bring
    your own chair or blanket to sit on and dress for the
    weather! There will be onsite catering to purchase drinks
    and hot food.
