Kenneth Grahame’s classic children’s tale

Based on Kenneth Grahame’s children’s classic, The Wind in the Willows follows the adventures of four woodland friends through dance, song, music and puppetry.

The escapades of the reckless Mr Toad and his long-suffering friends Ratty, Mole and Badger are brought to life in this production for all ages, as the peaceful river bank is rocked by a speeding car, a galloping caravan, a racing train and criminal deeds cooked up in the depths of the Wild Wood.
