Octagon Theatre Bolton
Based on the novel by Jonathan Swift
A new adaptation by Satinder Chohan and Mike Kenny
Directed by Elizabeth Newman and Ben Occhipinti

This summer we will transform Queens Park into the extraordinary land of Lilliput from classic children's tale Gulliver’s Travels.

Gulliver is a traveller and a teller of some rather tall tales. This one is maybe his tallest yet! Gulliver wants to be a hero in his daughter’s eyes. So he takes her on a journey to a land where he is literally a giant. Travel with Gulliver to the land of Lilliput where war is brewing, trouble is coming and Gulliver finds himself at the centre of it all.

Gulliver’s fantastical adventures will be brought to life in a huge celebration of Bolton communities in the Octagon’s first ever park show. A cast of professional actors will be joined each performance by giant puppets, young performers, local choirs and community companies in a spectacle not to be missed!

We hope you and your family can join us on the adventure this summer!
