Walled Gardens Outdoor Theatre Season | Bridgwater & Taunton College

Bridgwater & Taunton College (BTC) is thrilled to welcome the return of Quantum Theatre this July, as the summer outdoor theatre season begins at The Walled Gardens of Cannington.

From misty marshes to the dusty, dirty streets of London, Quantum Theatre delivers a brand-new adaptation of Charles Dicken’s Great Expectations to kick off an exciting summer season of theatre.

Delivering high comedy and dark drama, follow the journey of Pip in the beautiful backdrop of Cannington’s famous Walled Gardens.

Quantum Theatre tours nationally with new adaptations of classic texts and Shakespeare plays. They have been touring for over 30 years in all manner of venues, including arts centres, National Trust and English Heritage venues, castles, parks, gardens and more.

Great Expectations promises a fantastic start to a busy season, where The Walled Gardens welcomes several other outdoor theatre productions, including:

Aymeric Huguerre, Walled Gardens Manager, said,

It is fantastic to offer such incredible productions to our local, and wider, communities. In the beautiful setting of our gardens, I cannot imagine a better location to enjoy family-friendly theatre – bring along your picnic and folding chairs and enjoy live music, puppetry, slapstick and poetry!

Full dates, times and purchase options are available on the ‘Events and Special Offers’ page on the Bridgwater & Taunton College website.
