The Tempest at Sherwood Forest

July 28 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The world’s first cycling theatre company, The Handlebards, are coming to Sherwood Forest! The group pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe.

Join their all-female troupe at Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ like no other. In usual Handlebards style, expect riotous of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.

And what’s the play about? Well – a shipwreck washes the court of Milan up onto a mysterious desert island, inhabited by magicians, sprites and monsters, where nothing is as it seems. There’s magic, musicality and mystery a plenty!

This is an outdoor production in Sherwood’s Forest amphitheatre, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on (to avoid a sore bum!), a picnic to dig into and dress for the weather!
