SAVE THE DATE – Macbeth at RTC – Thursday August 12th

We are delighted to welcome Handelbards to RTC on August 12th at 7pm, for a rip roaring, hilarious performance of Macbeth from their all female cast.

Join The HandleBards all-female troupe at the Rede Tyne & Coquet Sports Centre for a bicycle-powered, farcical production of Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’.
Forget the tears and tragedy – this is a frantic, delirious, full-of-beans family show like you’ve never seen before.
This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, and dress for the weather!

The bar will be open and food will be available onsite.

More information and tickets can be purchased via the following link:
