back in 2016, we devised our first show officially as curly tales 'The Shoemaker's Christmas Wish', supported by Arts Council England, Freedom Studios and Leeds Inspired.

This was an adaptation of The Elves and The Shoemaker. we follow Charlotte trying to keep her grandmother's crumbling shoe shop above water. With Christmas on the way and customers heading to other shops, Charlotte feels like giving up. That is until one morning, Charlotte wakes up to find a beautiful pair of shoes in her shop window...  

our tour reached 26 different libraries across leeds and bradford. it was one of our proudest moments as a company.
