Great Expectations - Outdoor theatre

Join us on Pip’s journey to discover the true nature of his ‘Great Expectations’ brought to you by Quantum theatre

  • Booking essential

From the misty marshes of Kent to the dusty, dirty streets of London, we bring you a thrilling new adaptation of Dickens’s most enduringly popular novel, packed full of high drama, mysterious goings on and all your favourite Dickensian characters.

Join us on Pip’s journey through adversity to discover the true nature of his ‘Great Expectations’ in our exciting new production of this much-loved family classic.

So, pack your picnics, grab your wet weather gear or sun-cream (or both), something to sit on, and join Frank and Gilbert as they navigate their way through car chases and convicts in the struggle to escape the clutches of the local crime lord and clear Gilbert’s name.

The performance is two hours, including a 20 minute interval.

Babies under 12 months go free. National Trust admission charge does not apply.
