The HandleBards Twelfth Night

Sunday 31 July, 7pm
£10.00 - £17.00

Sunday 31 July, 7pm

Join The HandleBards at The Reader for a bicycle-powered, laugh-out-loud production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.

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.

This performance takes place outside in the Garden Theatre. Please bring along a picnic rug or chair to sit on. Guests with picnic rugs will be directed to the front so that they have a clear view of the performance. Come rain or shine this event will go ahead so please come prepared for all eventualities. 

Add on a Reader picnic box to your ticket - £15.95 
Picnic box for two includes: meat or vegetarian sausage rolls, a selection of locally sourced cheeses, artisan crackers, homemade onion chutney and marinated olives. 
Add two small bottles of prosecco for an extra £9.

Notes on Performance

  • Doors open at 6pm, so bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
  • Chairs, blankets and any other low level accessories are welcome.
  • In case of rain, please don’t bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching, so please wear these instead.
