elves and the shoemaker design story.

This booklet was designed to advertise a magial family christmas show, with added extra activities. The Elves and the Shoemaker Golden Shoe Trail is a free family fun activity. There are two golden shoe trails on where you have loads of fun searching for the golden shoes with letters on. Once the letters are found then you need to unscramble the letters to reveal the secret word. It does not stop there, as once you have the secret word you take it along to a performance of the Elves and the Shoemaker and children will receive a free gift! 


A high jinks journey of joy and rediscovering of the past. In this topsy-turvy re-telling we meet Geoff, a lovable but forgetful retired shoemaker who is visited by two magical Elf friends. With toe-tapping music, laugh out loud characters and beautiful puppetry.

june arts jam design story.

Full House selected a programme of work that enriches an educational experience. June Arts Jam involves a fine selection of performances and educational workshops for Bedford Schools. This festival allows schools and the public to get the most out of the cultural spaces in Bedford.

June Arts Jam runs every June in Bedford.

Full House Theatre’s festival brings a selection of performances and activities for children and their families to enjoy in cultural spaces in Bedford.

We work with Bedford Creative Arts, The Higgins, Bedford Libraries, John Bunyan Museum and The Place Theatre to make June Arts Jam happen.

Illustration - Blue Bedford Bear

Full House asked for a digital version of a child friendly grizzly bear eating some jam. The bear was to be fun and appealing to children who are in Reception, KS1 & KS2. It was decided that the hand drawn illustration was tocreate with a smiley, kind, fun, cheeky, and warm character bear.


Full House required a wide selection of advertising material produced that will spread the word about their amazing performances and what they have to offer. The illustrated bear was to be involved throughout the advertising material.

art town: make it happen design story.

Full House Theatre are looking to create a new young company. We will be auditioning across the county to find just ten talented young actors and/or musicians aged between 13-17 to be part of a new company that will create a devised performance piece for younger children. The successful cast members will work with our highly experienced team including a professional director, composer, set designer, writer and movement director to produce a piece of theatre made to the highest standard. This piece of theatre will then tour to community spaces across Bedfordshire for family audiences. The rehearsals will happen weekly in Houghton Regis in the summer term and the performances will happen in the first week of the summer holidays.

Houghton Regis Art Town creates artistic opportunities for people living in the town.
