The Motley-Minded Cobblers Theatre Company are LIVE ON STAGE in this fast-paced madcap adventure filled with original music, fantastical magic and a healthy dose of Christmas Spirit!

It's nearly Christmas and all the Elves are hard at work!

Except two of them…

They're here to tell you a story, the story of how they saved Christmas...

A new (socially-distanced and ‘covid-secure’) take on the tale of the most famous Cobbler of all!

Suitable for all ages, this is a show about friendship, bravery, and how even the smallest action can change someone's life for the better, forever. The perfect show for getting in that Christmassy mood!

Recommended for ages 5+

The Cow Fields of Slack Bottom 

by Alan Stockdill


A new play from award-winning playwright, Alan Stockdill (Le Grand Return, Godfrey’s Last Stand, The Last Memory)


The Smidgintons and Smacklethwaites have farmed the Scuddleswick valley in peace and prosperity for centuries. But when young Fred makes a request of his neighbour, he unleashes a terrible chain of events with somewhat hilarious consequences.


A tale of passion, dead men’s boots, mushy peas, slack bottoms and horse whips; find out what happens when Stockdill gives Chekhov a right good going over.
