Rolls-Royce Motor Cars today confirmed details of a unique outdoor promenade performance of Toad of Toad Hall, to be performed by the Chichester Festival Youth Theatre in the company’s grounds at Goodwood, West Sussex. A cast of over 60 young people aged between 11 and 19 will play much loved characters including Ratty, Mole, Badger and, of course, the car-loving Toad.

A play by A. A. Milne from Kenneth Grahame’s book The Wind in the Willows, Toad of Toad Hall will be set amongst the gardens, lakes and courtyard of the Rolls-Royce manufacturing plant and head office. The different scenes will be created in locations around the 42-acre site, including the Wild Wood, Ratty’s riverbank, the court room and the imposing Toad Hall. The audience will follow the production on foot, accompanied by a travelling band.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Chief Executive Officer, Tom Purves, said, “We are delighted to support the Chichester Festival Youth Theatre in this unique performance. We have a long-standing relationship with the Chichester Festival Theatre and this is one of our many local community initiatives in the West Sussex area.”

Toad of Toad Hall will be performed daily at Rolls-Royce from 4 - 16 August.
