What's Elf about?

Elf, the ultimate Christmas musical, is back in London this winter!

One Christmas Eve, young Buddy Hobbs slips into Father Christmas' sack by mistake. Transported to the North Pole, he's found by Father Christmas who raises him as an elf. Years later, Buddy decides to leave for New York to discover his real roots.

With the help of Father Christmas, he finds his father, Walter Hobbs, and his brother, Michael. But they don't believe in Father Christmas! Buddy takes matters into his own hands and reminds his biological family - and the whole of New York - the true value of Christmas.
