A classic tale is set to be portrayed at two venues in the Staffordshire Moorlands next month.

The Leek-based Lambdog Theatre Company will be returning to the Foxlowe Arts Centre with 'The Wind In The Willows.'

It will also be performed at The Venue in Tean.

The company that brought us 'Pinocchio' and 'Aladdin' returns with a brand new adaptation of the family favourite, starring Toad of Toad Hall, this April.
