Hamlet @ Recycle BikesAlternative theatre troupe, The HandleBards, will be performing a pedal-powered version of Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’ at ReCycle Bikes on Friday, 17th July as part of a five month European Tour.

Callum Brodie, Callum Cheatle, Tom Dixon and Paul Moss will be carrying all the required set, props, costumes and camping equipment across thousands of miles on four bikes, performing over 50 times at venues including Nottingham Castle, Whalton Manor and the Edinburgh Fringe.

Formed by London-based theatre company Peculius, the HandleBards use their bikes to power various on-stage contraptions, turning recycled items scavenged from camp-sites into set design and broken bike parts into on-stage props.

The four actors will play all the parts in ‘Hamlet’, and will be looking for enthusiastic members of the audience to join the performance. The show starts at 7pm, and while entrance is free, donations gratefully accepted.
