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.

Leading comedian, actor and presenter Rufus Hound stars as the amazing Mr Toad in this spectacular new musical based on Kenneth Grahame’s much-loved classic which reunites Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes and Olivier Award-winning composer and lyricist George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.
