The Wind In The Willows

Begin­ning at 10am SLT (18:00 GMT), join us for a read­ing, spon­sored by the Cale­don Library and pro­duced by Radio Riel, of the entire twelve chap­ters of Ken­neth Gra­hame’s clas­sic The Wind In The Wil­lows, played back-to-back. This marks the cul­mi­na­tion of a year-long series of lis­ten­ing par­ties on the River­bank, A Wil­lowy Place, Cale­don Tan­gle­wood:

Come as a char­ac­ter from Ken­neth Gra­hame’s nov­el and join us as we lis­ten to and dis­cuss the adven­tures of the shy but loy­al Mole, the poet­i­cal Water Rat, the brave Otter, the gruff but kind­ly Mr. Bad­ger, the vain­glo­ri­ous Toad, and all the oth­er crea­tures of wood, stream and field who pop­u­late this much-loved sto­ry. And hear, too, Gra­hame’s neo-pagan influ­ences come to the fore as the ani­mals meet the Great God Pan in The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, the chap­ter that gave the Pink Floyd album its name.

Big Peo­ple may join us in Tinyville, or repose in com­fort at the Oxbridge Library in Cale­don Oxbridge:

The entire read­ing will last for about five hours. If you can’t be there in per­son, then click to tune in to our Main Stream or set your par­cel to
