Down by the riverside, something stirs. Mole’s fed up with Spring cleaning and comes up for a breath of fresh air… The next you know, he’s got a new friend, and it’s a friend with a boat. This is Ratty who says very wise things like: “There is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats”. And in they get and off they row and their Great Adventure begins. They meet the incorrigible, boastful, loud and pompous Toad with his passing whims. First it’s his caravan, then it’s a motor car (poop ! poop !), then it’s his barge, not to mention all the scrapes he gets himself into. Then there’s dear old Badger trying to bring some sanity into the proceedings. Mix in a few rather sinister Wild Wooders and a handful of rather strange human beings and you have the classic story re-told with inimitable humour by Yorkshire’s own Alan Bennett. Lots of singing, lots of dancing and lots of fun. A colourful spectacular for the child in each of us. The Wind in the Willows is one you’d be sorry to miss. However old you are.
