Twelfth Night – June 6th

The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe. Join their all-male troupe in the beautiful Rook Lane Chapel for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’ like none other. In usual HandleBards style, expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.

Lost in Vagueness – June 8th

No Glastonbury this year, never fear, it is here… Lost in Vagueness is a night to celebrate, re-live and rejoice in a world that was Lost Vagueness, the infamous party that, as Michael Eavis says, reinvigorated Glastonbury Festival. You’ll see the feature film, dance to the music and delight in our one-off immersive night for the wrongly behaved. The film:  “Lost in Vagueness, the untold backstage story of Glastonbury Festival” a debut music feature documentary by Sofia Olins presented by Dartmouth Films.
