There’s a problem in the North Pole this Christmas when Santa is too ill to deliver presents. There’s only one Elf who can make sure presents are delivered all over the world. It’s a busy night travelling from country to country but there’s lots to learn along the way. But why is one present always left over? Who is it meant for?

Join us for a whirlwind adventure around the world! Funny, interactive and joyful, The Elf who Saved Christmas is a new show about learning to value yourself.

The Elf who Saved Christmas touches on celebrations across the globe as our Elf rushes to deliver every single present. Supported by Southwark Council’s Culture Together Fund, it was inspired by conversations with young people from our Young People’s Theatre.
