Toad amazed by electric vehicles

CHARACTERS from the Wind in the Willows have been busy comparing engine technology in preparation for the show which kicks off tonight.

The Phoenix Theatre is staging the show from tonight (Thursday) to Saturday, and as part of the rehearsals the Young Phoenix have undertaken debates on pollution and carbon footprint and how best to make changes to make things better for the future.

The debates were part of their character development work and show bosses hope it has given them an insight into the problems of pollution.

Tickets priced at £9 and £8 for concessions are available by visiting or by calling the box office on (01670) 367228.
