THE cycling theatre troupe The HandleBards and Slapstick Picnic Outdoor Theatre are returning to the grounds of the Alex Moulton Charitable Trust’s Jacobean Hall in Bradford on Avon this summer.

They will be performing adaptations of Macbeth on Tuesday, July 13 from 7-9pm and The Importance of Being Earnest on Friday, July 30 from 7-9pm.

Chairman Steve Missen said: “We are excited to welcome the HandleBards back to The Hall this summer; it is always a joy to see the grounds full of visitors making the most of this wonderful setting.

"With lockdown restrictions slowly lifting the Trust are keen to encourage the public back to The Hall and are hosting a number of new events over the coming months, so keep your eyes on our website.”

Online booking is encouraged, with past performances by the travelling troupe at The Hall selling out fast.

The Hall is the former home of the late Dr Alex Moulton, famed for the Moulton Bicycle and automotive suspension systems.

It is a magical location where visitors can immerse themselves in the beautiful hidden grounds in central Bradford on Avon and enjoy these exciting alfresco theatre performances. Picnics are encouraged.

The Trust relies heavily upon its income from events and donations from the public to enable them to care for the historic Hall, estate and collection.

This income helps them to create a safe future for this significant piece of local industrial history.
