After hugely successful tours in the summers of 2013 and 2014, described by none other than Sir Ian McKellen as 'uproariously funny', the HandleBards are back on their bikes for their most diverse season to date. Hamlet and A Midsummer Night's Dream are touring the country as we speak - and we think they may just be our best yet!
The HandleBards do Shakespeare differently - performing with eight very sore legs, and using their bikes to power various surprises and contraptions on-stage, whilst playing ALL the parts in Directors James Farrell (RSC, West End, Chichester Festival Theatre) and Emma Sampson's (of Riff Raff fame) hilarious 1930s indie-folk romps.
The HandleBards are currently hiring two tour managers, as well as cating four male and four female actors for their 2016 summer tours. Please check out our jobs page for more information.

Last year we saved 50.2 tonnes of CO2 by travelling by bike, and we rewarded by winning the the Edinburgh Fringe Sustainable Practice Award. We'd like you to be environmentally concious too. Here's a few possible ways:
- At some venues in 2015 we'll be offering discounted tickets to anyone who cycles to the show. Details of where will be announced soon.
- Why not visit GoCarShare.com and visit us on a lower carbon footprint?
- Have you got an old bicycle part or accessory that you don't want anymore? Get in touch and we'll keep your green conscience squeaky-clean by recycling it for use in our shows.
