Mole, Ratty, Badger and Toad pay a special visit to Epping Forest

A new production of the well-loved children’s book “The Wind in the Willows” is coming to Barn Hoppit, Epping Forest on Sunday 9th July.

During the interactive show, the audience will become part of the action: walking around the Forest to meet the characters Mole, Ratty, Badger and Toad in their homes and following their adventures on the banks of the pond. It will be performed by the Theatre Merchants and starts with an invitation to the audience to bring a picnic and ends with a dance involving the entire audience.

The original production was commissioned by The London Wildlife Trust to raise awareness of the declining number of water voles, and first performed at Crane Park Nature Reserve, Whitton, in 2008.

For further details and tickets please visit the Eventbrite website.

The City of London Corporation manages over 11,000 acres of green space across London and south east England, including Epping Forest, Hampstead Heath and Burnham Beeches, with many of its sites designated National nature Reserves and Sites of Special Scientific Interest for their unique ecology and rare plant species.

Epping Forest is London and Essex’s largest open space, attracting nearly 5 million visits a year.
