Outdoor theatre this summer

Described by none other than Sir Ian McKellen as 'uproariously funny', the four-strong all-male HandleBards present Shakespeare’s plays as you’ve never seen them before - fast-paced, irreverent and bicycle-powered. On 15 June they’re stopping off at Ascott Cricket Pavillion, to perform their rib-tickling production of Shakespeare’s joyous comedy Much Ado About Nothing.
