Family Theatre Event: The Wind in the Willows

Monday 16 August - Thursday 26 August (Monday to Thursday)

Chelsea Physic Garden presents a theatrical experience of ‘The Wind in the Willows’ this Summer. Wind in the Willows is a beautiful blend of theatre, storytelling, audience interaction, and even some creative activity along the way. There is something for the entire family.

Spring is in the air and Mole has found a wonderful new adventure above ground. There’s boating with Ratty, a feast with Badger and hijinks on the open road with that silly old Mr Toad of Toad Hall. You and the foursome become firm friends, but after Toad’s latest escapade, can you join together and beat the wretched weasels?!

This immersive experience will be produced Entirely from recycled, reclaimed, and repurposed materials. What better way to save Mole, Ratty, Badger, and Toad!
