Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad Battle Through The Showers
Charming, friendly woodland creatures were out and about in a Staffordshire park when the much-loved children's classic Wind in the Willows was performed in front of local families. Intermittent showers failed to dampen the audience's enjoyment during the open-air performance of Wind in the Willows, which was staged by Quantum Theatre at Dosthill Park in Tamworth. The picturesque setting of the park provided the perfect location for the wildlife adventures of favourite characters Mole, Ratty, Badger and Mr Toad as they headed off on their mad-cap escapades with a heart-warming tale of friendship, mishap and mayhem. Quantum Theatre's production was a brand new adaptation of the Kenneth Grahame family favourite.
Favourite characters abound in Wind in the Willows
While in the park, families were also able to discover the two-metre tall metal sculptures of the Wind in the Willows characters that have been created by sculptor and artist Luke Perry and dotted around the area for people to find when they visit. The sculptures have been made as part of this year's Tamworth in Bloom campaign which is celebrating everything that makes the town a great place, including its history, the community, and its many great events, such as the live performances in its parks and open spaces.
