Touring December 2022

Public performances: 9th - 11th December | Longfield Hall, 50 Knatchbull Road SE5 9QY



We're back this December with a new production, adapted from the Brothers Grimm classic tale. 

We'll be touring care settings and community venues - please use the contact form to enquire about booking for your community, care home or school.

Adapted and devised by the company, this production brings the Brothers Grimm story to life through music, puppetry, dance and the most festive of theatre! Bring the whole family along to enjoy across all generations.

Written in 1806 by the Brother’s Grimm the tale was originally the first and longest story in a series of three fairy tales entitled The Elves. It follows a failing shoemaker at Christmas time, who one morning awakes to discover a perfect pair of shoes, already made, sitting at his work table. Each morning the same mysterious occurrence takes place, helping him make his fortune. A story of hard work rewarded, the perfect treat for a frosty afternoon.

Come one, come all, adults grab a mulled wine and mince pie bring the family and join us to witness the magic of the Elves, sing along and pull a cracker or too - you might even get a festive card!

Suitable for all ages | dementia friendly | sensory theatre
