Outdoor theatre in the Ruins of Bradgate House!

(Ruins open 1hr before the performance)

Performance at 14.30

Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats…

Spring is in the air and Mole has found a wonderful new world. There's boating with Ratty, a feast with Badger and high jinx on the open road with that reckless ruffian, Mr Toad.  What more could such firm friends wish for? But after Toad's latest escapade, can they join together and beat the wretched weasels?

Join Mole, Ratty and Badger on their mad-cap adventures in this heart-warming tale of friendship, mishap and mayhem in Quantum Theatre’s brand new adaptation of Kenneth Grahamse’s family favourite.


Adult £12,
Child (under 16) £8, under 2 free

Frequently asked questions:

  • Allow time for you walk from either the Newtown Linford car park (0.7 miles through Little Matlock) or 1.2 miles from Hallgates via the Reservoir and (FREE to visit) Visitor Centre. There are signs guiding the route. Car parking is £3 for the day - so why not enjoy a full day at Bradgate?
  • The Ruins of Bradgate House will be opened one hour before the show so you can set up for picnics.
  • The area is grass, no benches so bring low back chairs, picnic rugs. Please be considerate about large umbrellas or tented covers/windbreaks with regard to other visitors
  • We have limited numbers to 300 (so the space has plenty of room)
  • Bring picnics - celebrate/take pics (no recordings please)... but please note after the show we will be asking you to move on (sorry that sounds officious!) so we can clear the space for the next performance. (please tidy up after yourself)
  • We will have two port-aloos on site
  • There will be an ice-cream bike!
  • The show is great and the company will be using a sound system but it is live, outdoor and happens whatever the weather (except extreme lightning storms!) No refunds unless we cancel! (sorry illness or better offers do not lead to refunds)
  • The show is two halves each about 40-45mins mins with a 20min interval
  • Bring your tickets as the gate will be checking them

Car parks machines do not take cards
No dogs please (other than assistance) due to picnics and our policy for performance events
