Wind in the Willows

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 10:40 am

Stories Set To Music with Dance

Following the success of Monkey Puzzle in 2023, we’re delighted to welcome back award-winning Toscana Strings for this family-friendly performance combining music and dance with Birmingham Royal Ballet soloist Laura Tye, as they tell the story of Wind in the Willows.

Can good friends Mole, Ratty and Badger help Mr Toad after one adventure too far? Adapted from Kenneth Grahame’s children’s novel and music by Edward Elgar, this performance combines the perfect mix of enchantment and humour with the opportunity for audience participation to captivate young imaginations.
