The Comedy of Errors (presented by The Handlebards)

Join the troupe at Clumber Park for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’ like you’ve never seen before.

  • Booking essential

Pedalling from venue to venue with all of their set, props and costumes on the back of their bikes, the HandleBards are a four-strong troupe of actors who are spending the summer bringing environmentally sustainable Shakespeare to venues across the UK.

Join the troupe at Clumber Park for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’ like you’ve never seen before. When two sets of estranged twins are brought together on the same island, this classic comedy takes hold, with mistaken identity, music and manic costume changes a plenty.

This is an outdoor production, so please bring a chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!

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. – This is an outdoors performance and surfaces may be uneven. There are accessible paths leading to the lawn which is a short distance from the car park. There is also an accessible toilet near the performance area – if you have any access related questions ahead of the performance please get in touch!

Please remember there is limited signal and internet at Clumber Park.
