Rufus Hound stars in this hilarious stage adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's book.

Kenneth Grahame's wild tale about the thrill-seeking, lovable menace Mr Toad comes to life in a brand new stage musical starring Rufus Hound with a book by Oscar-winning screenwriter and Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes and Olivier Award-winning composer and lyricist George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.

This riotous comedy follows the impulsive Mr Toad who’s 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, comedy and heart to the world-famous London Palladium from June.

The show runs from Friday 16th June at the London Palladium, and you can get tickets here.
