Titchmarsh to make West End debut

Alan Titchmarsh is to make his West End debut with a production of Wind In The Willows.

The former Gardeners' World star and chatshow host will be the narrator of the show, adapted from Kenneth Grahame's much-loved tale about Toad, Ratty, Mole and Badger.

The production, created by the Royal Opera House, picked up an Olivier Award for the best entertainment show during an earlier run at London's Duchess Theatre.

It is now to be staged at the Vaudeville Theatre for a further festive run, from November 26.

Alan said: "I am thrilled and delighted to be joining this tremendous production which celebrates my all-time favourite children's book. Poop poop."

Further casting for the show - which includes dance, music, puppetry and narration written by former poet laureate Sir Andrew Motion - is to be announced at a later date.
