HandleBards: A Midsummer Night's Dream / HamletCycling Shakespeare troupe the HandleBards pedal across the UK to perform and on 11th and 12th September they bring A Midsummer Night's Dream and Hamlet to the beautiful Chelsea Physic Garden. The HandleBards, who describe themselves as beautifully British and bonkers, are a four-strong, all-male troupe of cycling players who take on 44 characters between them. Described by Sir Ian McKellen as "outrageous" and "uproariously funny", the eccentric troupe use their bikes to power various surprises and contraptions on stage. Doors open an hour before the performance so bring a blanket and leave time to enjoy a picnic and a complimentary Chelsea Physic Garden inspired Beefeater London Garden Gin and tonic.
