The Scary Bikers

Tue 27 Mar–Sat 31 Mar

Written and directed by John Godber

A new comedy about life, love and staying on your bike!

When retired miner Don and former private school teacher Carol met at a bereavement group, they thought they’d found a new beginning. But a bike ride through Europe will test their budding romance, and the road to love is rocky when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

Join them on their hilarious and heartfelt journey, as they reconcile the past, debate the present and worry about the future. Whether they’re saddle sore in Southampton, blistered in Bordeaux or frazzled in Florence, one thing is for sure – it takes two to tandem!

Starring the double BAFTA and Olivier Award-winning partnership of John Godber and Jane Thornton, whose feature film Last Laugh was released in October 2017.
