Bring out your picnic basket; the wonderful world of The Wind in the Willows is coming to the Royal Botanical Gardens this December and January.

Brought to you by the Australian Shakespeare Company, The Wind in the Willows is an inspiring tale of Mole, Ratty, Mr. Toad, and Badger written by Kenneth Grahame over a century ago. The Royal Botanic Gardens with its riverbank and lush setting fits in perfectly with this story, which makes it a real pleasure to watch. The characters are hilarious and have a knack for getting audience members young and old to a be part of this magical world of make-believe.

"Take the adventure, heed the call, now ere the irrevocable moment passes! 'Tis but a banging of the door behind you, a blithesome step forward, and you are out of the old life and into the new! Then some day, some day long hence, jog home here if you will, when the cup has been drained and the play has been played, and sit down by your quiet river with a store of goodly memories for company".
