Pedalling actors from HandleBards will retell the story of Beatrice, Benedick, Claudio and Hero who become entangled with plotting, frivolity and melodrama in Shakespeare’s famous comedy.

Join The HandleBards all-male troupe in the 18th Century Walled Garden for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’.

In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter. And what’s the play about?

Well – a group of soldiers return from the war to a household in Messina, causing the kindling of new love interests and there-kindling of old rivalries. The parallel love stories of Beatrice, Benedick, Claudio and Hero become entangled with plotting, frivolity and melodrama in Shakespeare’s famous comedy.
