Handlebards Romeo & Juliet *£17/£12


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.

This is an outdoor production, so please feel free to bring your own chairs, blankets and cushions. The show running time is 90 minutes (without interval).

An unhinged and bonkers, laugh-out-loud version of Romeo & Juliet.  With music, mayhem and more costume changes than you can shake a spear at, expect the Handlebards usual irreverent, charming and hilarious style to come bursting onto the stage at the Millennium Green, Bridport Arts Centre’s outdoor summer venue.


How it will work:

Although all booking is online and by phone only at the moment, and sold as unallocated, we’ll be seating households and social bubbles at a social distance for the performance, in line with government regulations. Please make sure your booking is for  your household/social bubble only. This will give us an idea of how many groups/picnics there will be on the day.

Under 10’s price: One free with each paying adult. We also have 10 tickets reserved on a ‘Pay what you can’, for Key Workers and those whose financial situations may have drastically changed due to the pandemic. Sold on a ‘first come, first served’ basis these are available by phone only: 01308 427183.

Please note: there will be no ticket sales / returns ‘on the door’ for the foreseeable future. Box office function will cease at 4pm on the day of the performance. All tickets are E-tickets/print at home and scanned at point of entry.

Keeping you safe:

We have implemented a range of extra safety measures to keep you safe when booking a ticket for shows during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Please look out for an email from Bridport Arts Centre including these details and make sure you check your spam/junk folders.
