Wind in the Willows inspiration for Tyne photo competition

Tyne Rivers Trust > About > News > General News > Wind in the Willows inspiration for Tyne photo competition

Mole, Ratty, Badger and Toad have been out and about on the riverbank looking for good images to enter Tyne Rivers Trust photo competition. The competition was launched last month but these well-known characters have just arrived in Hexham to appear in a hilarious new adaptation by David Nixon of the classic Kenneth Grahame novel ‘The Wind in the Willows’ at the Queen’s Hall.

If these popular river inhabitants win Tyne Rivers Trust’s 2017 photo competition, their images will appear in the Trust’s 2018 Charity Calendar which will be sold later this year, and is kindly supported by EGGER, to raise money for the Trust’s work of conserving and regenerating the river. Any images entered must have been taken this year and have the River Tyne or one of its tributaries as the subject. The winning photographers will receive a free calendar and the overall winner will receive a one to one half day workshop with competition judge, David Taylor of David Taylor Photography.

You can see our furry visitors in this new adaptation of the classic story between June 15th and 17th. The production is being staged by the locally renowned Queen’s Hall Theatre Club and it promises to be fun for all the family. “We’re really pleased to team up with the Tyne Rivers Trust” says David, who also directs the play. “There’s such an obvious link, with the river featuring prominently in the story, and with us staging it in Hexham so close to the beautiful River Tyne.”

Trust Director Susan Mackirdy said “We are delighted that Mole, Ratty and Badger could visit the Tyne and help to promote our competition which is an important part of our fundraising year and is a fun way of promoting work of the Trust.”

Full details of how to enter the Trust’s photo competition, images from last year’s calendar and all the terms and conditions can be found on Tyne Rivers Trust website  and more information about when to see Mole, Ratty and friends can be found on the Queens Hall website .
