Family favourite to be performed outdoors At the Park

Kenneth Grahame’s classic riverbank tale The Wind in the Willows will be brought beautifully to life outdoors in Itchen Valley Country Park this summer.

One sunny afternoon in Wild Wood, while the animals enjoyed a picnic and played with their friends, a mischievous ‘poop poop’ echoed in the trees... Join Mole, Ratty and Badger on Friday 27 August at 3.30pm as they save Toad and his shiny new motorcar from deep trouble in this hilarious production of the classic woodland adventure, complete with live music.

Award-winning theatre company Calf2Cow bring you an utterly charming theatrical experience, presented by The Point and Itchen Valley Country Park, which are operated by Eastleigh Borough Council, as part of the At the Park series of events.

The production will take place at Itchen Valley Country Park near the Kingfisher Barn. The Woodland Café will serve a range of hot and cold food and drinks.

Audience members are asked to bring their own seating or hire a deckchair as part of their booking. Picnic blankets, or a camping chair, deckchair or similar are all welcome.

The production lasts for one hour 35 minutes. Tickets are priced £12, £10 concessions. Babies in arms under 3 years-old do not need a ticket.​

Charlotte Hall, Creative Director at The Point, said: “It’s such a thrill to be able to offer audiences the chance to enjoy a fun and relaxing theatrical experience in the beautiful setting of Itchen Valley Country Park and I can’t think of a better story than The Wind in the Willows to watch amongst the natural elements.

“There will be music, laughs and brilliant characters, and it will be a great way to spend an afternoon together as the summer starts to draw to a close.”

Eastleigh Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Health, Councillor Tonia Craig, said: “It will be great to welcome audiences back to see high quality theatre organised by the talented team at The Point. Staging a production in the beautiful surroundings of Itchen Valley Country Park means that people can enjoy The Wind in the Willows in a COVID-safe environment.”
