Live On The Lawn: The Handlebards – Romeo & Juliet

BURTON CONSTABLE HALL, Burton Constable, Skirlaugh, HU11 4LN

15 Aug 2020



Family Friendly

The Friends of Burton Constable are delighted to announce ‘Live On The Lawn’ – a series of spectacular summer shows!

After several months of isolation, we’re excited to be welcoming you back outdoors to enjoy some quality time with family and friends.

Throughout August and September we will be bringing you live entertainment form our North Garden, with performances from both local and national acts.

What’s On? 

We’ve been working with a local events company to set-up a temporary stage in a delightfully scenic and secluded part of our Grounds. All entertainment will operate from the North Garden lawn (unless stated otherwise). Here, we have enough outdoor space for around 200 people (socially distanced). Entertainment will vary, with acts and performances for all audiences and age groups throughout the daytime and evening.

THE HANDLEBARDS are a unique theatre company who cycle Shakespeare’s plays to outdoor venues across the UK, carrying all of their set props and costumes on the back of their bikes.

With music, mayhem and more costume changes than you can shake a spear at, expect the usual irreverent, charming and hilarious style to come bursting onto stage! Forget the tears and tragedy, pack a picnic and get ready for some socially-distanced live and wired Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before.

More and more events will be added over the coming weeks, so be sure to follow our social channels and keep an eye on our website for any updates.
