The Elves and The Shoemaker opened at Lighthouse, Poole in Dec 2010 and since then has made over 386 performances to audiences of around 57,500. We decided to give the Elves a little rest at the end of 2015, but they are returning for a seven-week festive run at Theatre Royal Plymouth in December 2019/January 2020. This re-staged version will then tour throughout 2020.

The Elves and the Shoemaker is presented in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth and supported by Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts, The Lyric Bridport and The Point, Eastleigh.
