ALAN Bennett's hugely popular live adaptation of children's classic The Wind In The Willows will be staged in Birmingham this Christmas.

The charming tale of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad opens for a two month run at The Crescent Theatre on November 28.

A cast of sixteen actors and musicians will bring a host of wonderful characters to life in this production by The Rep, which is currently being rebuilt.

Performances of this family show throughout its run are at 10.15am, 2.30pm and 7.30pm across different days apart from Christmas Day and New Year's Day when there are none.

On December 19 and 29 there will be signed shows, on January 5 and 17 there will be audio described ones, and captioned performances on January 11 and 12.

There is a Wind In The Willows themed family day with drama workshops for children and families on December 15.

Tickets for all shows start at £9 to £28 with concessions available. They are on sale from the box office on 0121 236 4455 or online www.birmingham-rep.co.uk.
