Pedal-powered theatre at Abbey Pumping Station

Published on 19 June 2017

AN evening of pedal-powered, alfresco Shakespeare will be on offer at Leicester's Abbey Pumping Station next month.

The award-winning HandleBards are proudly billed as the world’s first cycling theatre company. They cycle from venue to venue with all the props, set and costumes needed to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare around the world.

The company’s all-female troupe (one half of the HandleBards) will be bringing its unique take on ‘As You Like It’ to the beautiful grounds of Abbey Pumping Station on Saturday 8 July.

Doors open at 5.30pm and picnics are welcome. 

Tickets cost £11 (£9 concessions) and can be booked by calling Leicester City Council museums service on 0116 299 5111.
