Now and again there's a completely unmissable new musical in the West End. Occasionally it's a family show. This is one of the finest, an opportunity to experience Kenneth Grahame's beautiful book The Wind in the Willows on stage, in the flesh, with stunning music, stage sets and costumes your eyes just won't believe.

Wind in the Willows – The story

Sit back, relax and enjoy a story that has captivated millions since it first hit the bookshelves in 1908. Apart from a few subtle changes including the addition of a prominent female character – something missing from the original book – the tale remains the same.

You'll adore Toad's crazy obsessions and his ultimate great escape, the loss of the baby otter and his safe return thanks to the pagan god Pan. You'll love Mole's delightful little home, warm and cheery and blessed, and sensible Ratty's river adventures. Badger's wonderfully teacher-like common sense attitude takes the biscuit. And the horrible, violent and warlike creatures who live in the Wild Wood, who have luxurious Toad Hall in their sights, are there too. It's all laid out for you creatively and skilfully, the very best in musical storytelling.

There's a super book available, written by Julian Fellowes. The tunes and lyrics are written by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. The Director is Rachel Kavanaugh, Peter McKintosh is the set and costume designer, Howard Harrison creates the lighting design, Pippa Ailion is the Casting Director and the musical is produced by Jamie Hendry Productions.

In the capital after a whirlwind tour of several respected theatres across Britain, Wind in the Willows is playing in the West End from June 2017. If you love nothing better than a feel-good rampage of a musical studded with charming characters and set to music you'll be singing for weeks, this one's for you. It's a musical for the whole family.

Bring your kids, your granny and granddad, uncles, aunties, nieces and nephews. It's the perfect treat, just in time for the festive season, and the anticipation is already gathering.

Money well spent

London Box Office customer

Excellent show

This is a fab show especially for children. Thoroughly enjoyed it


London Box Office customer

Excellent Ratty

The acting from Ratty and the lady who played the horse amongst other characters was excellent. Well worth watching. Too long for younger children / saw a few families leave during the interval with tired little ones - but it was the evening show.


London Box Office customer

Unexpected delight!

Simple yet charming storyline which held all of our attention including my young daughter. Booked last minute and so glad we did! Fun, amusing and brilliant acting! Lots of big names who didn't fail to impress. Really enjoyable for families.

So cute and great fun!

Wasn't sure what to expect from this one but thoroughly enjoyed it. Very engaging. Would recommend.


London Box Office customer

Amazing!! A must see!!!

Everything about this show is incredible - the cast, music, sets and beautiful story, all done with great humour in a beautiful theatre. Friends accompanied us who do not like musicals as a rule but were blown away. I would say that although we were so immersed in the show we did not notice the time and could have watched it for hours, it probably is a bit too long for children under 5, but if your little one already loves the wind in the willows story I doubt they would mind :) We enjoyed it so much that we are going to try and book to go again, definitely the best musical we have ever seen, we didn't want to leave!


London Box Office customer

Fantastic show! We came with 6 adults and 10 children ages 7-3. They were a little lost at times as they can't always follow the story through the songs. We would have loved to see more children in this production. I believe there were only 2.... it's a wonderful way to inspire all the little ones in the audience. Overall we thought it was a great show.

A great adaptation

London Box Office customer

Excellent in all respects

The show was very entertaining well corigrafted and good acting


London Box Office customer

Excellent show

The show was great good fun - the characterisation of the animals was brilliantly done, with great costumes and choreography. The music was tuneful and drew in the younger members of the audience very quickly. The singing performances were all of a very high standard. We greatly enjoyed the show. The only drawback was the use of intense, blinding green spotlights trained on the audience before the show started and at the interval.


London Box Office customer

Very cute characters

London Box Office customer

A must see

This show is an absolute wow! Everything about it is outstanding and so entertaining - from the music, singing and dancing to the staging and fantastic minimal but most effective costumes. A brilliant show in every respect. Well done everyone.


London Box Office customer

Feel good-must see!

It was brilliant-took my parents and my children and it was great fun!We all loved it!


London Box Office customer

Fun fun fun

Very reasonable staff prices thought it would be very childish but not 6 of us adults and 3 16 yr old light relief from the world today


London Box Office customer

A must see

A brilliant and sensitive handling of a great classic


London Box Office customer

Storyline awful

Too much music weak Storyline knowing the book well. Wish I hadn't bothered to go. Wouldn't recommend it. No leg room still suffering from cramped knees. Only good thing was the costumes.


London Box Office customer

Fantatic fun.

A great day out for young and old.


London Box Office customer

Excellent acting and singing

Thin on storyline and uninteresting musical score.

Review: WIND IN THE WILLOWS at The London Palladium

06 Jul 2017 in Reviews

The Wind in the Willows You may have read some sniffy reviews for The Wind in the Willows, the lavish new family musical currently playing at the London Palladium.

Ignore them; having read my colleague Steven Markwick’s report for this site from the preview performances and attended the press night myself I can promise you a great night out for you and your young friends and relations.

Review: THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS A Preview Performance at The London Palladium

26 Jun 2017 in Reviews

The Wind in the Willows The Wind in the Willows is given the big musical treatment by the team behind the re-working of Mary Poppins and most recently Half A Sixpence - lyricist Anthony Drewe, composer George Stiles and book writer Julian Fellowes. Going right back to their early days with Just So, through the Olivier-winning Honk! and last year’s Three Little Pigs, there’s something about anthropomorphic animal stories that get Stiles & Drewe’s creative juices flowing and in particular give Anthony Drewe’s rhyming muscles a work out. Full of terrific, freshly-minted lyrics that are a joy to hear (and that can’t always be said for every ear-splitting West End show) we get “foxes” rhymed with “equinoxes”, “prickles” and “vehicles” (as a family of hedgehogs nervously wait to cross a busy road) and more rhymes for Toad then have probably ever been counted.
