Story of a Swedish elf

A “poignant, child-like glimpse at the mysteries of life and death” is promised in a play about an immortal Swedish elf, at The Castle Theatre, Wellingborough on Saturday.

Tomten watches over a farmstead on a midwinter’s night, while everyone is sleeping. His only traces are footprints in the snow.

The show, presented by Old Saw, is aimed at children aged three and above, and their families.

Tickets cost £8.50 and £6.50. Family tickets cost £25. Ring 01933 270007. Performances will take place at 11am and 2pm.
