Wind in the Willows with ice cream!

Winstone's Ice Cream Factory
This afternoon DreamShed Theatre preformed their adaptation of Wind in the Willows up on Rodborough common at The Ice Cream Factory (AKA Winstones Ice Cream). This show was especially performed to help raise funds and awareness for Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust. More specifically to help inspire school children and residents alike in the Cotswolds to learn more about river bank conservation and how to save the water vole in our area.
Dreamshed Theatre preform Wind in the Willows
There was a lovely turn out of people of all ages to see this very special performance. The performers from Dreamshed Theatre did a top notch job of entertaining and educating the crowed at the same time.  There was lots of laughter and fun had by all. I can highly recommend going to see them if you get the chance.
Crowds enjoying the show
They couldn't have had a better day either, lovely sunshine with just the right mixture of clouds. It wasn't too windy either....though this was a play about the 'Wind' in the Willows. ;-)
Ratty and Mole
Cotswold TV was there as well, busy recording the event. You'll have to check out their channel later for a little preview of the day.
