Maghull High School

Saturday 16th July, 2 pm

Tickets: £5

An outdoor adaptation of Dickens’ classic, Great Expectations, brings the first Maghull Arts Festival to a close. This family friendly production by Quantum Theatre Company will take place in the grounds of Maghull High School in an outdoor marquee on Saturday 16th July at 2pm. Refreshments are available throughout.

Great Expectations is the thirteenth of Charles Dickens’ novels and tells the tale of Pip, an orphan, who is brought up by his abusive sister and her husband, but who eagerly abandons his humble beginnings to begin a new life as a gentleman. From the misty marshes to the dusty, dirty streets of London, Quantum Theatre bring you a brand new adaptation of Dickens' most enduringly popular and atmospheric novel which promises high comedy and dark drama as we follow Pip's journey through adversity to discover the true nature of his 'great expectations'.

Emma Lloyd, Sefton Arts & Cultural Services Marketing & Programme Manager, says:

“I can think of no better way to end a fabulous three weeks of arts and cultural activity than having a truly classic novel come to life outdoors. Not even the British Summer can spoil this event, as the marquee will keep us dry in all weather!”

All tickets for Great Expectations are £5 and are available by calling 0151 928 1919 / 01704 540011 by visiting and booking online or at Maghull High School reception (during school hours).
