The puppets from the Theatre of Widdershins will be staging a production of The Elves and the Shoemaker later this month.

From soft dancing shoes and swarthy pirate shoes to silver buckles and silken souls, nobody makes shoes like an elf. The well loved tale, which was made popular by the Ladybird Classic, has been re-heeled by Potton’s Theatre of Widdershins in its own inimitable style.

With beautifully crafted puppets, a superb set, sublime music, a kaleidoscope of miniature shoes and a comic mouse this is a magical must-see. It is suitable for everyone aged three and up.

You can see The Elves and the Shoemaker on Tuesday, December 20 at 2.30pm in Sutton Village Hall.

There will also be a performance the following day (Wednesday, December 21) at 2pm in St Mary’s Church Hall in Potton.

Tickets cost £7 for adults and £5 for children while babies on knees are free. You can buy yours from
