The Elves and the Shoemaker

This Christmas Join Full House Theatre in Luton at the Hat Factory Arts Centre with their most popular show, The Elves and the Shoemaker.

In this topsy-turvy re-telling we meet Geoff, a lovable but forgetful retired shoemaker who is struggling to remember the past. One day at the bottom of his garden he is visited by two friends who help him to recall the old days of his shoe shop, reliving the good, the bad and the magical! With the help of the Elves, Geoff realises that a little bit of elf magic is all he needs to give his wife the only thing she’s ever wanted, just in time for a very special birthday.

With original toe-tapping music, laugh-out-loud characters, puppetry and real magic, The Elves and the Shoemaker is a festive story sure to make the whole family feel all warm and cosy inside.

Home grown favourites Full House Theatre have a national reputation for high quality work and have offered fantastic Christmas shows for young audiences and their families in Luton for the last ten years. Previous hit shows have included The Night Before Christmas, Jack and the Beanstalk and most recently Big Red Bath (“Every detail is perfect” – Broadway Baby).

The Hat Factory Arts Centre is an arts facility in the centre of Luton run by The Culture Trust Luton, a vibrant and progressive independent charity. Newly refurbished in 2019, the Hat Factory Arts Centre is back and presenting its most exciting programme yet, full to the brim with live music, contemporary dance, theatre, film, workshops and more!

With funding from Arts Council England and in partnership with The Culture Trust Luton, Full House Theatre will be bringing The Elves and The Shoemaker back to Luton from 18th December to 24th December.

(Running time: 90 minutes, including a 20 minute interval)
