Elf…. the hit West End and Broadway musical, based on the popular movie starring Will Ferrell, was super sized into a Christmas Spectacular version for an arena tour at Genting Arena, Birmingham, Motorpoint Arena Cardiff and Motorpoint Arena Nottingham, during December 2018.
The cast was headed by pop legend David Essex as Buddy’s dad, with 'Love Actually’ movie star Martine McCutcheon playing Buddy’s girl friend Jovie.
