The Wind in the Willows


Following a triumphant opening season of shows in Castle Park Theatre’s new space, Colchester’s open-air theatre is looking forward to hosting its first visiting show.

That will be the fun filled family classic The Wind in the Willows, performed by award-winning Theatre Company, Calf 2 Cow.

Calf 2 Cow are renowned for creating unique storytelling experiences. Based in Bath, their work has won awards across film and theatre. Ranging from Horror to family Christmas shows, their work always has an element of clowning, slapstick, audience participation and music.

This adaption of The Wind in The Willows keeps completely true to the text as the troupe’s four band members, through; storytelling, music and multi rolling, bring the book alive. Expect lots of falling over, people cramming into cars that are too small, and of course, water fights by the river.

Join Mole, Ratty and Badger in a floor stomping, live music, hilarious re-telling of this woodland adventure as they save Toad and his shiny new motorcar from deep trouble.

The Wind in the Willows takes place at Castle Park Theatre, Lower Bowls Green, Castle Park, Colchester, on Monday, August 22.

Gates open at 6pm, with the show starting at 7pm. Tickets are £16, £11 for children and £45 for a family of two adults and two children. They’re available from
