THERE will be plenty of fun and games when Mr Toad and his friends hop in to Eshott Hall.

The Cambridge Touring Theatre, well known for its highly entertaining antics, will be performing its own specially-adapted version of Wind in the Willows on Sunday.

And in addition to the open air show, children of all ages will have the chance to attend a workshop based on some of the play’s best known characters.

The actors will re-acquaint all generations with the inhabitants of one of the country’s most famous riverbanks as Ratty, Mole and Badger struggle to keep arrogant Toad out of trouble.

There are bound to be a few surprises along the way as singing, dancing, sandwich stealing and spraying the audience with water are all part of the company’s exuberant style.

House Manager at Eshott Hall Louise Ball said: “We are delighted the Cambridge Touring Theatre is coming to Eshott Hall. The production has been specially written for a family audience and I’m sure people of all ages will enjoy it.”

The workshop, aimed at five to 11-year-olds, will introduce children to the story and characters and they will also learn about what it is to have friends and to be a friend.

This will start at 1.30pm and the production will take place between 3pm and 5pm.

Tickets are priced £12.50 for adults and £9.50 children. A family ticket (two adults and two children) is £39.50.

Luxury picnics can also be purchased at £35 for four people or £12.50 per adult and £5 per child individually.
