Badger, Ratty, and Mole live by a serene riverbank where everyone lives in harmony, but one day, their peaceful existence is brought to an end, when their mischievous friend, Mr. Toad, develops a bad case of motormania.

Rampaging through the countryside with an untameable joie de vivre, Toad does not care about anything but the need for speed, and causing havoc for everyone around. But it isn't long until this reckless attitude lands him in trouble with the law and a criminal band of weasels. Badger, Ratty, and Mole must do all they can to rid their friend of his obsession before it becomes too late.

Kenneth Grahame's charming tale of The Wind in the Willows has delighted readers for over a hundred years. Now at the Duchess Theatre, you can once again become entranced as this timeless classic takes you on a journey through the Wild Wood. See your favourite characters come to life through puppetry, liver performance and dance. The action is set to scores by Martin Ward, who was inspired by the Edwardian composer, George Butterworth.

Directed and choreographed by Will Tuckett, The Wind in the Willows will play between the 11th December - 1st February with tickets costing between 15-30. It was originally shown at the Royal Opera House, and this is the first time for such a production to be transferred to the West End.
