○ The HandleBards are returning to Northumberlandia.

The Bards will be performing Twelfth Night on Tuesday, August 14.

Written in 1601, the play features, among others, Duke Orsino, who is in love with Lady Olivia (who will not have anything to do with him), Viola, a gender-bending heroine who is shipwrecked and decides to cross-dress as a boy, and a pompous butler called Malvolio.

In previous years, The HandleBards have performed As You Like It and Much Ado About Nothing at Northumberlandia to enthusiastic audiences.

Tickets are on sale for the event – £15 per person with U12s going free. To book, visit www.nwt.org.uk/handlebards
The play is being performed from 6.30pm to 9.30pm (including the interval), with gates opening at 5pm. Bring a picnic, chairs and blankets. In case of rain, bring waterproofs.

This is a fund-raising event on behalf of Northumberland Wildlife Trust.
