With its magical blend of vivid story-telling, original music and creative puppetry, you're in for a treat!


Finn is a fidget. His brain is ablaze with an unbreakable buzz that fizzes to his fingers and tickles his toes... or it would do if he could only find his feet. “I can feel it. Electricity ripples like thunder in my chest and lightning in my brain.”


Christmas brings surprises and not all of them are nice. It’s a crackling mix of hopes and fears and they’re definitely getting closer. Finn is on the run. Can stories help to untangle things? If only someone would listen to Suzy Pettiskew before she bursts. Or stop Barney Box’s dog from growing bigger night by night. And can anyone really ‘blotzsh the Glim’? ‘Shoes are very good story tellers. You experience a lot by stepping into someone else’s shoes’.


So fasten your laces! Tie them up tight and join Finn as he discovers Tink the cobbler and her amazing story-telling Shoe Shop. Jump into this crackling Christmas adventure of bravery, fear and finding your feet in a stormy world.
