The Handlebards: Twelfth Night

Tickets: £45 Family ticket (two adults & two children) / £18 adult / £7 u18

The HandleBards are a bicycle touring theatre company who cycle their shows all across the UK. Join them for a bicycle-powered, laugh-out-loud production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.

And what’s the play about? Duke Orsino is in love with Lady Olivia, but she won’t have anything to do with suitors. Viola is shipwrecked and believes her twin brother Sebastian to be dead. Meanwhile, a bunch of Olivia’s servants plot to make a fool out of her pompous butler, Malvolio. There’s drunkenness, frivolity and cross-dressing a plenty.

Set in the natural amphitheatre next to Lyveden’s Jacobean Manor House which houses a café where you can purchase food and drinks, or bring your own picnic.

This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather! We perform whatever the weather: a performance will only be cancelled on Health & Safety grounds, judgement of which lies with the event management team on the day.
