Show Information

Mole is discovering the Wide World beyond his home. Rat just wants to mess about in boats. For Toad, it’s one fad after another until he discovers cars and lands himself in bother. Wise old Badger does his best to keep order. But as the friends head out on their adventures, home will always be calling them back.

Sherman’s Main House Christmas show has become one of Cardiff’s essential seasonal treats – The Wind in the Willows will be no exception. With a stunning set, beautiful costumes, live music, and lots of laughter this version of Kenneth Grahame’s classic book promises an utterly delightful trip to the theatre.
