Following the fantastic success of Ugly Duckling and Three Little Pigs, The Maltings welcomes back Northern Ballet with their latest ballet for children, Elves & the Shoemaker.

It is the perfect opportunity to introduce little ones to the magic of live ballet, music and theatre. A kind-hearted shoemaker gives his final pair of shoes to a poor lady in need.

The shoemaker awakes to find a pair of magical shoes in his shop! Who is the mysterious maker of these shoes? After the BAFTA award-winning TV adaptation of Ugly Duckling for CBeebies, don’t miss this enchanting new production of the famous Brothers Grimm story!

This child-friendly performance will last approximately 40 minutes, perfect for ages three and up.

Northern Ballet’s Elves & the Shoemaker is at The Maltings on Saturday, March 21 at 12.15pm, 2pm and 4pm.

Tickets are £5.50 adults, £4.50 children.
