TAUNTON'S Brewhouse Theatre and Arts Centre are delighted to announce this year's Christmas show The Wind In The Willows, which will run from Friday, December 7 to Saturday, January 5.

A charming world of companionship, carefree boating and delicious picnicking opens up for lovable Mole as he joins kind-hearted Ratty, brave Badger and the bumptious Mr Toad in this wonderful classic story.

But it is 1936 and the world is changing fast. Motorcars are more powerful, swing is the latest music craze and the old class system is breaking down. Mr Toad's irresponsible living and extravagance leads to the loss of his beloved home, and the four friends have to go to battle to regain Toad Hall. Will they overcome the barbaric stouts and weasels, will Mr Toad see the error of his ways, and can friendship conquer all?

Come and join in this whirlwind riverbank adventure from the team behind Alice In Wonderland, The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe, When Santa Fell To Earth and A Christmas Carol.

Director Robert Miles said: “I am very excited to be presenting such a fun packed and timeless classic this Christmas, offering the perfect outing for all ages at this magical time. Building on the amazing response to Alice In Wonderland last year I am sure The Brewhouse will once again be buzzing with delighted audiences sharing the seasonal cheer”.

The show is recommended for all the family aged four and above.
