The Elves and the Shoemaker raises £2000

Posted by: Fundraising 2 October 2013

Nicki's Smile have raised a fantastic £2000 with a production of 'The Elves and The Shoemaker' at the Radlett Theatre. On 29th September the show played to a sell-out 300 strong audience, raising much-needed funds and awareness for Nicki's Smile.

Reworking a classic Brothers Grimm children's tale the Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company put on a show including music, puppets and comedy that entertained all the family.

Dan Blake, Nicki's husband and the founder of Nicki's Smile, wrote on their blog:

"With the many children in attendance occasionally on the edge of their seats, and frequently off them, shouting encouragement at our heroes Sam and Belinda it was the presence of the Elves that really captivated their attention. There will have been more than a few requests for magic shoes and Elves on the car journeys back to reality after the show."

Well done Dan, team, and everyone who had what sounded like a magical night!
