On your bike, Shakespeare

Four actors have taken a bike-themed Shakespeare production to the Edinburgh Fringe

Four actors have arrived in Edinburgh by bike - carrrying all their props and costumes with them to perform at the city's Fringe festival.

The Handlebards - Callum Brodie, Tom Dixon, Paul Moss and Callum Cheatle - are cycling around the country to bring audiences their performances of Shakespeare.

The group will perform Macbeth and The Comedy Of Errors - complete with appearances by their bikes - outdoors at the city's Royal Botanic Garden during the Edinburgh Fringe.

They have already cycled around 1,500 miles to get there after setting off from London more than two months ago and stopping at theatres from Bristol to Dundee on the way.
