Wind in the Willows 2023

It's that time of year again! 

From Thursday 5 - Sunday 22 January, the amazing Mr. Toad and his bonny, boisterous pals will be heading to Sydney's Royal Botanic Garden to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Wind in the Willows. Glenn Elston's stunning outdoor production has been proudly entertaining littlies and biggies for generations with this classic tale of life on the riverbank.  

Led by Head Chief Rabbit, Ratty and Mole and Weasel, the children go on a hilarious adventure, giggling all the way, as well as join an exciting mission with the Rat Pack and Badger Battalion to rescue the little lost otter, Portly from the Wild Wood. 
This is interactive theatre at its best! So, pack a picnic, pack the kids and head on down to the riverbank for this rollicking promenade production.
