The Handlebards present – Macbeth

Friday 20th & Saturday 21st August – 6.30pm  

Join The Handlebards in the stunning grounds of Holker Hall as their all female troupe presents Macbeth.

You can take in the pedal powered spectacle on either Friday 20th and Saturday 21st August (or both if you wish) from 6:30pm nightly – the site will be open during the day, into the evening so why not arrive early and enjoy the grounds, bring a picnic and enjoy a drink and even a pizza from the pop up pub, the Bess & Barrel! The show will be located just into the parkland and you will be directed on arrival.

Show info :
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 Holker Hall 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!

The show is set in two halves, both 50 minutes each with a half hour interval so plenty of time to visit the Bess & Barrel for interval snacks! 

Tickets will not be refunded on account of bad weather.
The show is Covid Safe and all guidance will be adhered to.
