Elves and magic in Leighton Buzzard

The Elves and the Shoemaker
The Elves and the Shoemaker

A topsy turvy re-telling of a children’s classic can be seen at Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre for two performances.

The Elves and the Shoemaker is presented on Saturday June 10 courtesy of Full House Theatre and comes to Bedfordshire as part of a UK tour.

The Elves And The Shoemaker is a tale of rediscovering the past, with Geoff, a loveable retired shoemaker.

Now in his twilight years Geoff struggles with his memory and the patchwork of his past.

One day at the bottom of his garden he is visited by two magical friends who help him with the perfect gift for his wife for her 90th birthday… with the help of a little bit of elf magic.

The show features original toe-tapping music, laugh-out- loud characters, puppetry and even a little bit of real magic.

Just like a comfy old slipper, this story is sure to make old and young alike feel all warm and cosy inside.
