Aaron Sidwell said of the series' return: "I'm over the moon with the response Bard From The Barn has received in Series 1 and 2. Our aim was to prove how accessible this material can still be and it's been wonderful to see how we've pulled that off.

Series 3 has been all about giving Bard From The Barn the send-off it deserves. We have some of the industry's biggest and brightest actors and directors exploring Shakespeare's characters and bringing you them as they would be in today's world".

The series, based on an original concept by Aaron Sidwell and Hal Chambers, is production managed by Emma Smith with Benjamin Collins as Lead Editor and sound design by Harry Smith.
