Great Expectations

Bring your friends and family and enjoy free theatre in our beautiful gardens – a summer treat for all ages…

Great Expectations is a cracking London story which examines class and social mobility, explores love and obsession, and questions how we think about family. Free Theatre UK will be adding a steampunk spin to this Dickens’ classic. 

Free to watch, bring something to sit on. Picnics welcome or refreshments available to buy

The front gardens will be open an hour before each performance starts.
