We are excited to welcome Toad and friends to the Gardens – we think they’ll fit right in among the many variations of wildlife we house here. For the grown ups, we have two very special adaptations of Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice, performed by Chapterhouse Theatre Company. The show must go on, come rain or shine – so pack your macs along with your picnics!
