The Elves and The Shoemaker opened at Lighthouse, Poole in Dec 2010 and since then has made over 450 performances to audiences of almost 70,000. We decided to give the Elves a little rest at the end of 2015, but in 2019 they returned (looking revitalised in a newly restaged version of the show) and over a seven-week festive run at Theatre Royal Plymouth delighted over 10,000 audience members.

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.
