"4 actors, 4 bicycles, 40 characters and a 1000+ mile adventure."
After hugely successful tours in 2013, 2014 & 2015, the four-strong, all-male HandleBards company are back on their bikes and cycling the UK in June, July and August 2016, before setting out across Europe. On just four bicycles they will carry all the necessary set, props, costumes and camping equipment to perform Shakespeare's 'Richard III'.
The HandleBards is Shakespeare done differently - using bikes to power various surprises and contraptions on-stage, whilst playing ALL the parts, this will be a spectacle not to miss!
Enjoy a different type of outdoor theatre in Raby Castle’s idyllic Walled Gardens, bring along a rug, a deckchair and a picnic to enjoy this classic Shakespeare story told in a different way.
Gates open at 5.30pm
performance begins at 7.00pm
Please bring your own seating/rug, warm clothes & picnics/drinks.
Tickets: Adults £15, Concessions £12, Family (2+2) £50.
