Open Air Theatre in the gardens

Open Air Theatre at Gunby

The Gunby gardens are the perfect setting for an open air theatre performance. This years' show of 'The Wind in the Willows' promises to delight adults and children alike.

Saturday 19 August 5pm - The Wind in the Willows

Join Badger, Ratty, Mole and Toad for a perfect summer of adventure. What starts as a search for the best picnic spot rapidly turns into the most hilarious of escapades. With the bumptious Toad’s heart set on a shiny new motorcar and his very liberty soon at stake, will his faithful friends come to his rescue – and will he let them? Alive with music and song, this magical family show is presented in beautiful traditional costume and features a woodland parade during the interval for everyone to join in with! Fun and frolics aplenty with this adaptation of the classic novel loved by children and adults alike, performed in the grounds of Gunby.
