Wind in the Willows

Fun for all the Family with Wind in the Willows Theatre Breaks starring Rufus Hound

Returning to the West End for summer 2017 was Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows Theatre Breaks. Wind in The Willows was adapted into a hilarious musical comedy by Oscar-winning screenwriter and Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes and Olivier Award-winning composer and lyricist George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.

Wind in the Willows London Theatre BreaksFollowing the many antics of the thrill-seeking Mr Toad along with his friends Badger, Ratty & Mole and all the other animals of the forest, this brand new production starred comedian Rufus Hound (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, One Man Two Guvnors) as the well-dressed green haired amphibian who has a penchant for fast motor-cars.

Featuring eye-poppingly beautiful design, exuberant choreography and a gloriously British score, The Wind in the Willows Theatre Breaks brought an explosion of anarchy, humour and heart to the world-famous London Palladium.
