Shakespeare is back! The Handlebards – Romeo and Juliet


The Handlebards are back this year with their rendition of Romeo and Juliet.

The HandleBards are the world’s first cycling theatre company. Before touring their “seriously silly” production of Romeo and Juliet around the world, they pedalled it 1500 miles around the UK by bicycle, with all the necessary set, props and costume in tow. Now, the show is back by popular demand – and, in usual HandleBards style, you can expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.

Join the HandleBards’ all-female troupe at the Broadway Arts Festival for Romeo and Juliet as you’ve never seen it before!

And what’s the play about? Well – Romeo and Juliet fall in love, despite the fact that both their families hate each other. Hilarity ensues… Well, sort of!

Your Chance To Influence Policing In The County

ecopsWe would like to offer you an opportunity to shape the future of policing in the county at a series of events taking place over the coming weeks.


The pressures on forces have never been so complex, as we work hard to manage demand and deal with the challenges of modern day policing.


In coming years, Cambridgeshire, along with other forces, will strive to be as efficient and effective as possible while facing national, regional and local issues.  


There will continue to be a strong focus on providing the public with the best service possible and it is really important to us that the public have the opportunity to play an active role in policing in the county.


Our focus is on making the most effective use of the resources we have and working closely with our partners. This will enable us to protect people, attack criminality and take every chance we have to prevent crime in the first place.


Local officers will also attend the meetings to talk about the challenges of local policing.  Following introductions from us both there will be an opportunity for questions from the public.


The first meeting will take place on:


Tuesday 20 November, from 9.30am (for a 10am start) until noon and will be held in East Cambridgeshire District Council Chamber, The Grange, Nutholt Lane, Ely CB7 4EE.


Throughout the meeting there will be an opportunity to get involved online through @CambsCops Facebook and Twitter.
