A fun afternoon for the wee ones
This year I am quite pleased with myself. Yes, so far, have managed to be quite organised in planning my time off work so that we have some family activities and 'me' time scheduled in balance. So, last Monday, as one of the family fun times, we saw this show at the Bread and Roses theatres in Clapham.

It was a cosy little theatre above the pub and the audience comprised grandparents, parents and little people. It ticked all the boxes for an entertaining afternoon. The plot- simple and 'everyone lives happily ever after' kind of ending, the jokes- appealing to young kids, the running time- 40 mins was just perfect. Tessa Hart as Elfadanina gave the audience an insight into the 'other side' of the scene- the plight of the poor elves working hard to make sure kids got their presents on Christmas morn. Surely, it wouldn't hurt to get herself and her best friend Elfadanini (Francisca Eve) a present from that big pile? But plans go awry when she realises that someone has beaten them to it and how ! All the presents have disappeared and she is caught by the Chief Elf (Rebecca Pryle). With the help of her best friend and a mysterious fairy (Lydia Lane) she must prove her innocence and find those gifts to save Christmas.

Whilst I still call my two, my babies, I realise that strictly speaking they found it fun but felt they were a tad too big for this one. I think however for those with offspring in the 0-5 years category, this is perfect in every way.

Everyone's happy in the end !
