Book and Lyrics by Julian Woolford
Music by Richard John
From the novel by Kenneth Grahame
Directed by Anna Fox

“There’s nothing quite like messing around in boats.”

Mole has never really left home before. But today, something is different. The world outside is calling, and he feels like it is time to answer…

Very soon, Mole is caught up in a whirlwind of wild adventures with his new friends Ratty, Mr. Badger and the absurd but loveable Mr. Toad. Can they overcome angry judges, mischievous weasels, and Toad’s own mad impulses to get their lives back to normal

From the team that brought you The Railway Children and based on the much-loved classic by Kenneth Grahame, this heart-warming musical tale of friendship and folly will be fun for all the family. Toot toot!

Book now and join us this Christmas!

Presented by arrangement with Julian Woolford and Richard John.
