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 a literary persuasion with a penchant for poetry and absolutely no desire to fight St George - The Reluctant Dragon, no less!

Collegium Singers invite to you come and enjoy John Rutter’s 1985 musical settingand to imagine the story unfolding somewhere in the Hills surrounding Wellington.
