Bringing music to a classic tale

Worcester Editorial 20th Sep, 2017   0

FANS of the children’s classic Wind in the Willows are being invited to enjoy a new musical adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s well-loved book.

Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall will play host to The Wind in the Willows: A Folk Opera on Saturday, September 30 from 7.30pm.

GreenMatthews, together with special guests Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer, use music and song to bring this timeless tale to sparkling life.

Join Ratty, Mole, Badger and of course the irrepressible Mr Toad as they embark on various adventures – on the river, on the road and in the dark and dangerous Wild Wood.

Using traditional English folk melodies set to new lyrics, the four musicians paint a vivid picture of Grahame’s world – from the humble comfort of Mole End to the grandeur of Toad Hall.

The Wind in the Willows is the perfect soundtrack to summer – vivacious, sparkling and full of life.

Tickets for an event not to be missed are £14.50 and available from the Worcester Live Box Office in the Crowngate Shopping Centre.

Alternatively call 01905 611427 or visit for more information.
