The HandleBards present....Romeo & Juliet

Tuesday 29th November - 6.30pm (Performance 7.00pm)



Described by none other than Sir Ian McKellen as "uproariously funny", The HandleBards are proud to present their first ever all-female troupe! Afer cycling from London with all of their gear in tow, the four-strong troupe presents a gloriously eccentric take on Shakespeare's timeless tragedy.

Since 2013, the HandleBards have pedalled over 5000 miles across the world, carrying all their set, props and costumes on just four bicycles. 2016, the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, sees the first outing of their all-female troupe. On Tuesday 29th November they will be here at the Hall to perform their side-splitting production of Shakespeare's epic tale of two lovers who've everything stacked against them.

The performance will be in the Great Hall with refreshments available before and during the interval (at an additional charge) so grab your finest group of friends and come watch some first-rate Shakespeare in the stunning surroundings of the Hall!


Tickets - Adult: £12.00, Concessions (Over 60's & Students): £10.00 and Children: £7.00

Tickets non-refundable
