Once upon a time, there were two shoemakers who were very old and very poor - so poor they couldn’t even afford to buy each other Christmas presents. With no wood for the fire and only one piece of leather left to make shoes, there was little festive spirit in the shoemakers’ shop.
But one night, just as the snow begins to fall outside and the clock strikes midnight, two mischievous elves appear at the window...
With live music, puppetry and lots of theatre magic, Grimm’s classic fairy tale, The Elves and the Shoemakers, comes to life this Christmas as a festive treat for all the family.
The Elves and the Shoemakers Trail
We Need You! We’re in a complete pickle! We’ve made new shoes for some of our famous fairy-tale customers but we’ve left them all over the Crucible and we can’t remember who each pair is for. What’s more, we still have loads more shoes to make before Christmas! Please help! Love, the Elves. Join us for a free activity trail around the Crucible foyer. The trail runs from 5-30 Dec. Collect your trail from the Box Office.
