'…as for the boy, he has great expectations’ – Mr Jaggers

When the orphan Pip meets the convict Magwitch in a graveyard and is forced to help him escape, his life takes a series of unexpected turns. Invited to the house of the mysterious Miss Havisham, he falls in love with her adopted daughter, the beautiful but cold-hearted Estella. Then the generosity of an unknown benefactor sends him to London to become a gentleman. But the truth behind his change of fortune, once revealed, is not what Pip expects...

Covid Guidelines:

The performance will be indoors and we will be asking all audience members to please wear a face covering at all times unless exempt. This is in order to do our best to keep everyone safe and preserve the opportunity for the students to continue their face to face education and assessment through our live theatre productions. There will be multiple sanitising points within the building and in the corridor before entering the Theatre.

Please note, we are unable to offer socially distanced seating at this time.

The licensed bar will be open from 6:30pm, where we ask all audience members to please wait until the house is opened. One of our Team will announce the opening of the house at approximately 7:10pm, at which point audience members will be invited to make their way down to the Theatre to find their seats. Please have your ticket QR code available on your device for scanning as you walk down towards the Theatre, or alternatively and if all your party are arriving together, we can check you in using the name on your booking.
