After all the 'Elving' we have been doing here at home... we took a break and went to see some other kind of Elves.
We are lucky enough to have the Tobacco Factory Theatre just down the road from us, and this year for the panto they put on a charming production of the Elves and the Shoemaker.
Such a magical show. Really clever the use of puppetry to portray the Elves. Colourful, funny and utterly magical.
We laughed, ooh and ahhed, gasped and thoroughly loved the whole performance.
Just long enough for little people to still be enthralled without becoming too bored.
We went with our lovely friends, and I hope this will become a tradition for future Christmases.
If you are in the local area, I would recommend you to go.
I feel so Christmasy now!
