oin The HandleBards all-female troupe at Hexham Abbey for a bicycle-powered, farcical production of Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’.

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 your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!

Notes on Performance

  • Doors open at 6pm, so bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

  • Chairs, picnics, 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.
