A new adaptation of a Charles Dickens’ favourite is brought to life at Louth’s Riverhead Theatre this week.

Hotbuckle Theatre Company present David Copperfield for one night only, Saturday, November 16.

Capturing the haunting beauty of the Yarmouth coast and bustling Victorian London, the story unfolds to tell of young Master Copperfield, who lives a sheltered life with his doting mother.

His life is thrown into turmoil when she marries the ruthless and violent Murdstone.

Thrust into an uncaring world of poverty and hardship, David must work out whom to trust if he is to grow into the man he should become and the hero of his own life.

The show starts at 7.30pm, with tickets £9 from the box office on 01507 600350; open 10am to 1pm.
