Mole yearns for adventure, Rat adores boats and Badger likes peace and quiet. Into their lives bursts Toad, who loves very fast cars and just can’t seem to help getting into trouble! But can the animals reform Toad’s character and evict the squatters from his ancestral home to restore justice to the world? Kenneth Grahame’s perennial classic is brought to the stage in Illyria’s inimitable style.
Recommended for children aged 5+ (although younger visitors are welcome!) and their families, join Illyria Theatre for a 1 hour, heart-warming performance of this classic story on the outdoor stage.
With 2 different performance times to choose from, 4.30pm – 5.30pm or 6.45pm – 7.45pm, pack a picnic, bring a blanket or chair and join us for an evening of perfect family entertainment.
Doors open to theatre ticket holders 1 hour prior to your chosen performance time of 4.30pm (doors at 3.30pm) or 6.45pm (doors at 5.45pm). For theatre-goers wishing to visit Harewood prior to doors opening on the day of your chosen performance to enjoy the Adventure Playground and gardens*, we are offering a reduced rate entry of £5 per person, under 4s are free.

The performance will take place on the North Lawn, the grassed area opposite the House, near to the Church. Please use the toilet facilities in the car park upon arrival if required and a steward will be on hand in the car park to point you to the performance area. You will then be greeted by stewards upon arrival to the performance area, who will check your tickets and seat you. This may take a little longer than usual to ensure that social distancing guidelines are adhered to, so please arrive in plenty of time, up to 1 hour prior to your chosen performance time.
Unfortunately tickets will not be available to purchase on the day upon arrival and all tickets must be pre-booked in advance on line. Tickets are expected to sell out ahead of the performance date due to limited availability to adhere to social distancing guidelines, so please book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
There will be no interval as part of this 1 hour performance, so please use the facilities on arrival if required.
Yes, the performance will go ahead whatever the weather! This is an outdoor event, so please come prepared with suitable warm and waterproof clothing or sun cream and sun hats if required.
