Elf...ish Christmas '23

A big thank you to everyone who came to see Elf..ish. We had a blast and the audiences were fantastic!

So now with full bellies and big smiles on their faces the Knockers have gone into hibernation back down in the mines.

Look out for the next time they come up to surface as they will be back for more food and silly adventures soon!

Dozy knockers!

Phew! Our knockers have gone into hibernation after a busy summer! But they'll be back soon for more shinanigans!!

The Jam First Theatre Tent

Over Christmas 2022, we once again created the "Richie Roo" Theatre Tent at Pinetum Gardens for our our Christmas show Elf...ish!

Over 50 tickets were gifted to families who wouldn't usually have attended due to financial hardship. These were kindly donated by our wonderful patrons as part of our new Secret Santa Scheme.

A huge thank you to all who supported us.
