 Kenneth Grahame (of ‘Wind in the Willows’ fame) published a book of children’s stories in 1898, called Dream Days. His story takes place in the Berkshire Downs where he lived, and legend has it that St George fought a dragon. However, Kenneth Grahame’s dragon is of literary persuasion with a penchant for poetry and absolutely no desire to fight St George – The Relectant Dragon, no less!

 Collegium Singers invite you to come and enjoy the John Rutter’s 1985 musical setting and to imagine the story unfolding somewhere in the Hills surrounding Wellington o December 17that 7.30pm.

Discounted tickets in advance
