Held in The Barn on the banks of the Lily Lake the Pocket Watch Theatre will transport you on a journey of grand adventures with Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad. Motorcars, the open road, train chases, mischievous weasels and simply messing about in boats on the river, ensures that there’s never a dull moment for the inhabitants of the Riverbank (but of course there’s always time for a snack!)

With stunning hand crafted puppets and an entirely original score performed live, this classic tale is charmingly brought to life, capturing the imaginations of audiences both young and old alike.
