Help poor old Ratty
MEET Ratty, Mole and Badger and all the creatures of the river bank in an al fresco production of Wind In The Willows in Stroud this weekend.
Together with the irascible Mr Toad, Kenneth Grahame's cast of colourful characters from his much-loved children's books are brought to life on stage at Stratford Park.
Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust and Bill Cronshaw of the Dreamshed Theatre Company have created a specially adapted performance of the classic tales.
The performance is being brought to the town as part of the Stroud Festival Of Nature, after touring around the county earlier this year.

See how Mr Toad's passion for fast cars gets him into all kinds of trouble and how his loyal friends get him out of various scrapes.
During its touring run the production has been seen by 900 adults and children, and 350 children in the Cotswolds took part in special conservation workshops from the Trust's Cotswold rivers community wildlife officer, Will Masefield.
This exclusive adaptation, written and performed by Bill Cronshaw, aims to raise awareness of the plight of the endangered water vole.
All funds raised will help contribute to the Trust's Cotswold Rivers Living Landscape programme, which aims to enhance and connect the habitats of Gloucestershire's water voles which are under threat of extinction.
The team is working with local volunteers on more than 100km of the rivers Windrush, Coln and Churn, and hope to continue to expand on this work to protect Ratty and other river wildlife, such as kingfishers, otters and barn owls.
Tickets are on sale at £5 for adults and £3.50 for children and are available by calling the Trust on 01453 383333.
