We are delighted to be hosting The Pocket Watch Theatre Company’s production of ‘Wind in the Willows’ which will include actors/ musicians and puppets on Saturday April 4th at 4pm. This magical event is aimed at a family audience from the age of 3+.

Held in The Barn on the banks of the Lily Lake the Pocket Watch Theatre will transport you on a journey of grand adventures with Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad. Motorcars, the open road, train chases, mischievous weasels and simply messing about in boats on the river, ensures that there's never a dull moment for the inhabitants of the Riverbank (but of course there’s always time for a snack!) 

With stunning handcrafted puppets and an entirely original score performed live, this classic tale is charmingly brought to life, capturing the imaginations of audiences both young and old alike.

The Wind in the Willows is a sit-down theatre show that lasts approximately an hour. It is suitable for ages 3+ (or anyone who can sit still for that long - please contact us with any questions!)

Our cafe will be open selling food, ice creams, and refreshments prior to the event and in the barn, the bar will be open selling teas, coffees, hot chocolates, and snacks as well as offering a licensed bar. So save the date and don’t be late to an enchanting spring afternoon event for all your friends and family!
