About the Show

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

When Mole forfeits his spring 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.

Featuring live music, songs and a talented company of actor-musicians, this charming and delightful adaptation by Toby Hulse of Kenneth Grahame’s classic story remains a firm family favourite and is sure to be a seasonal summer treat for audiences of all ages.

The Wind in the Willows is a funny, timeless tale of friendship, courage, consequences and bravery, and will play in the new Performance Marquee at Derby Market Place, a friendly and safe space made to welcome you back to the city.
