Rehearsals are now well underway for the forthcoming production of Wind in the Willows which will be performed outdoors. The production will take place at Radley Boathouse, on the banks of the River Thames, from Sunday 4th June until Tuesday 6th June. A cast of 6.1s and Shells, directed by John Moule and Ed Tolputt, will bring together this fun, heartwarming adaption of Kenneth Grahame’s classic tale of the beauty of friendship and nature.

The production will raise money, in memory of Martha Tolputt, for SSNAP (Support for the Sick Newborn and their Parents www.ssnap.org.uk). Radley will also be hosting an auction to fundraise for this incredibly worthwhile charity, full details coming soon.
Martha lived for five precious days two years ago. She was read most of Kenneth Graham's book during her short life - in the JR Hospital, in Helen and Douglas House, and at her memorial service. She set sail from the Boathouse on 3rd June 2015 - accompanied by the Beatles' Here There and Everywhere and a flotilla of coloured paper boats. Wind in the Willows is a special story being brought to life in a special place, for a very special girl.
