“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats…”

 

That immortal quote from Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows will be across the rural setting of the Weald and Downland Liviing History Museum at Singleton as part of its summer season of entertainment.

 

Spring is in the air and Mole has found a wonderful new world. There’s boating with Ratty, a feast with Badger and high jinx on the open road with that reckless ruffian, Mr Toad.

 

What more could such firm friends wish for? But after Toad’s latest escapade, can they join together and beat the wretched weasels?

 

Join Mole, Ratty and Badger on their mad-cap adventures in this heart-warming tale of friendship, mishap and mayhem in Quantum Theatre’s new adaptation of this family favourite.

 

Food and drink will be available to buy from the museum’s waterside cafe and visitors are welcome to bring their own picnics. Doors open from 6.15pm and the show starts at 7pm.

 

The event is outdoors so members of the audience are reminded to dress for the weather and bring a rug on which to sit.

 

Tickets should be bought in advance through the museum’s website or in person from its shop. Tickets are £14 for adults, £10 for children under 15, and £40 for a family.

 

The museum’s summer season continues until September 1 with a variety of theatre, film and music events for a range of tastes
