The amazing Mr Toad and his furry friends are packing up and leaving us at the end of the summer. THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS will now finish its West End run at the London Palladium on 2 September. Will you have a chance to see it before it closes? Big plus: Kids go FREE!

West End musical THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS will now end its limited season at the London Palladium on Saturday 2 September 2017.

Based on Kenneth Grahame’s treasured novel, the production opened on 29 June 2017, brought to the stage by producer Jamie Hendry in a new adaptation with book by Academy Award-winning screenwriter and Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes and Olivier Award-winning composer and lyricist duo George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.

It stars Rufus Hound as the amazing Mr Toad, Simon Lipkin as Ratty, Craig Mather as Mole, Neil McDermott as Chief Weasel, with Denise Welch as Mrs Otter and Gary Wilmot as Badger.

This riotous comedy follows the impulsive Mr Toad whose insatiable need for speed lands him in serious trouble. With his beloved home under threat from the notorious Chief Weasel and his gang of sinister Wild Wooders, Toad must attempt a daring escape leading to a series of misadventures and a heroic battle to recapture Toad Hall.

Featuring eye-poppingly beautiful design, exuberant choreography and a gloriously British score, THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS brings an explosion of anarchy, humour and heart to the world-famous London Palladium.

The full company includes Chris Aukett, Rosanna Bates, Joel Baylis, Jenna Boyd, Abigail Brodie, Jorell Coiffic-Kamall, Nicole Deon, Emilie du Leslay, Joshua Gannon, James Gant, Evan James, Michael Larcombe, Bethany Linsdell, Ryan Pidgen, Adam Vaughan, Georgie Westall and Natalie Woods.

Tickets are available from £15. Kids go free at every performance until 2 September.
