The Wind in the Willows announced as big festive production for Christmas 2022

For Christmas 2022, Derby Theatre will produce and present a revival of their enormously popular production of The Wind in the Willows, a charming and delightful adaptation by Toby Hulse of Kenneth Grahame’s classic story which proved hugely popular with audiences last summer.

The Wind in the Willows, a funny, timeless tale of friendship, courage, consequences and bravery, will run from Friday 25 November until Saturday 31 December, a firm family favourite perfect for all ages that will feature live music, songs, a multi-talented company of actor-musicians and lots of festive sparkle.

Join Toad, Ratty, Mole, Badger and their animal friends for a whirlwind adventure amidst the English countryside.

When Mole forfeits his seasonal cleaning for the lure of the luscious riverbank, he has no idea of the thrilling journey that he and his friends are all about to embark on.
