For theatre lovers, The Elves and the Shoemaker at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts is not to be missed. Featuring quirky songs, comedy and puppets, the charming show will quickly capture your imagination.
Taking place at Alexandra Gardens, Windsor on Ice is your opportunity to give Ice Skating a whirl this Winter.
