A WONDERFUL show filled with music, wonder, puppets and silliness is heading to St Boswells.

Following their sell-out show last Christmas, the Folksy Theatre Company makes a welcome return to the village hall.

This year, the talented company is coming with their new musical, The Elves and the Shoemaker, a captivating story about generosity, kindness and a couple of mischievous elves.

The Elves and the Shoemaker tells the story of a poor cobbler and his wife who have no money and just enough leather to make one last pair of shoes.

Then, good fortune suddenly smiles upon them.

While the shoemaker sleeps, someone fashions the most perfect pair of shoes imaginable - and a delighted customer pays twice the asking price!

Who could have done such marvellous work? And will the magic continue?

Filled with Folksy’s touch of wonderful live music, puppetry, multimedia and downright silliness, this wonderful musical will have the whole family entertained.

Youth arts mentor with promoters Live Borders, Ayliffe Rose said: "Events like this in village halls help to strengthen the community by bringing people together around a positive, happy occasion.

"This fun-filled show will bring laughter and smiles to all the family and get everyone into the spirit of Christmas.”

The Elves and the Shoemaker starts at 3pm in St Boswells Village Hall on Friday, December 13.

Tickets, priced at £6 for adults and £4 for children and concessions, are available on the door and from www.liveborders.org.uk.
