To be performed outdoors at

The Plantation Gardens and The Cathedral Cloisters, Norwich

2nd, 3rd, 9th and 10th Aug 24


from the novel by Kenneth Grahame
Adapted by Glyn Maxwell


The Wind in the Willows follows the story of the ‘awesome foursome’ – Mole, Ratty, Badger and Toad – as they navigate finding their way home and keeping Toad out of trouble. The show comes to a climax as the four friends, along with Ruby, take back Toad Hall from the WeaselCo gang by force. This play comments directly on the effects of deforestation and people’s role in ruining animals’ natural habitats.

The Wind in the Willows will be performed at two wonderful outdoor Norwich venues this August – The Plantation Gardens and The Cloisters

The performances are outdoors so you will need to bring your own blankets or chairs (and bringing a picnic too is very much encouraged).
We will be performing whatever the weather, so please do also bring appropriate weather protection on the day.

The venues will be open for arrival an hour before the show starts, to allow time for you to set up and settle in.
We will be selling refreshments on site as well, if you don’t wish to bring your own.

2hrs (including 30 minute interval)

This amateur production of “Wind in the Willows (Maxwell)” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
