Public transport recommended. Limited parking available

From Wednesdaay 6 to Sunday 24 January children will giggle and howl at the characters’ mad antics, go on an adventure with Head Chief Rabbit, Ratty and Mole, then join a dangerous mission with the Rat Pack and Badger Patrol to rescue little, lost Portly the Otter from the Wild Wood.

This is interactive theatre at its best and will have the children calling out, “He’s behind you!” and singing lyrics, “Waggle your ears, wiggle your nose,” or the inimitable “Quack quack quackady-quack”.  So, pack a picnic, pack the kids and head on down to the riverbank for this rollicking promenade production.

There wasn’t a moment that didn’t engage or entertain…perfect family fare in a delightful setting.
