Two enchanting shows at Kew Gardens this summer for children of all ages

The Wind in the Willows

The Wind in the Willows is Kenneth Grahame's classic story of life on the riverbank. A rollicking yet gentle adventure with best friends Ratty, Mole, Badger, Otter and, of course, the arrogant, vain and hilarious Toad.

This critically acclaimed, outdoor theatre production set against the magical backdrop of Kew Gardens’ lake, is packed with much-loved colourful characters, music, song and laughter. There is fun for young and old alike as the Head Chief Rabbit transforms your young ones into rabbits with a waggle of the ears and a wiggle of the nose. The young rabbits then join in the riverbank adventure with fun-filled laughs and surprises along the way. A favourite of children everywhere, this is interactive theatre at its very best. Come along and be part of the adventure! Suitable for adults and children of all ages.

The Dream Fairies Adventure through Bubble Land Adventure through Bubble Land

In The Dream Fairies, the adventurous Honeysuckle unexpectedly meets the fairies from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Honeysuckle has lost her wings and the Dream Fairies – cheeky Mustardseed, fluttery Moth, daring Cobweb and sweet Peaseblossom – have flown off course on their way to Fairy Land. Together, with the help of all the little elves and fairies, they go on an adventure through Bubble Land to find Honeysuckle’s wings and the special map to guide them home. Small children are invited to come dressed as fairies or elves.

Suitable for children aged 3–8, this production is an interactive adventure full of sing-along, clap-along songs plus bubbles, acrobatics and, of course, a sprinkle of magic dust that will enthral the young ones throughout the school holidays.
