REVIEW: The Wind in the Willows
The story and characters are familiar; for many, The Wind in the Willows is a favourite whether you are a fan of the book or the countless adaptations. New audiences can expect a warm tale of friendship set in the idyllic countryside of Edwardian England. This newest adaptation hits the West End at the London Palladium and stars Rufus Hound.

REVIEW: The Wind in the Willows (in exactly 250 words)
The Wind in the Willows, playing this Summer at the spectacular London Palladium, is a fun, albeit slightly over-the-top musical based on Kenneth Grahame's well-loved novel. The adaptation was written by Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey), with music by Stiles and Drewe (Half a Sixpence). But, whilst the show is visually impressive and full of catchy tunes, it feels quite laboured at times.
