The serenity of the English countryside has been destroyed by the ear-splitting roar of a motor vehicle zooming past the riverbank, with local daredevil Toad behind the wheel.

Much to the disapproval of his furry friends, Toad’s obsession with racing expensive cars puts the future of their home in peril when his misadventures lead to the wicked weasels taking over!

In Alan Bennett’s sparkling adaptation of the treasured British classic, lovable characters Badger, Ratty, Mole and Toad are left with no choice but to plot a rescue mission to save the day – all before high-tea, of course!

Enchanting fun for the whole family, this whimsical summer spectacle is an adventure for all ages, packed full of humour, heart and magic.


“Kenneth Grahame’s best-loved classic is the perfect opportunity for The Court to express our exemplary design and production standards. This is a charming tale that the whole family can come to in a celebration of theatre.”
Artistic Director, Ross Gumbley
