Bristol Shakespeare Festival – Midsummer Night’s Dream

performances at 2:30pm and 6:30pm

Midsummer Night's Dream posterJoin the HandleBards (the world’s first cycling theatre company) at the farm for A Midsummer Night’s Dream as you’ve never seen it before!

Before touring this “beautifully bonkers” production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream around the world, HandleBards pedalled it 1500 miles around the UK by bicycle, with all the necessary set, props and costume in tow. Now the show is back by popular demand – expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.

For: suitable for all ages

Cost: £16 full price, £6 under-16s

How to book: book online on the Bristol Shakespeare Festival website

HandleBards logoThe HandleBards began because adventures are fun. They are troupes of cycling actors who carry with them all of the necessary set, props and costume to perform extremely energetic, charmingly chaotic, environmentally sustainable Shakespeare plays across the globe.

The Bristol Shakespeare Festival is a community interest company (CIC), founded in 2003 and run by a team of dedicated volunteers passionate about bringing the freshest, most exciting productions of Shakespeare’s plays to some of Bristol’s most beautiful and unusual spaces every summer during the month of July.
