Oldham’s celebrity Elves have been offered the chance to switch on this year’s Christmas lights, in a house, in Springhead Oldham.
The pair, who swept to fame when they were discovered in Oldham library basement, have been offered numerous ‘high profile’ events in the town. “We originally booked One Direction” a Council spokeswoman told us, “But after a mass public protest we have booked the Elves instead.” Crowds of Oldhamers were out in force earlier this week, brandishing placards and chanting anti One Direction songs.
Harry Styles, a ‘singer’ with the popular band, tweeted, “They might be able to turn lights on, make shoes, but they can’t sing”. The Elves said “Who’s Harry Styles?”
The Elves can be seen in Oldham and Saddleworth this Christmas in a special tribute show written by local theatre company Hard Graft.
"We are are currently trying to come up with an idea how to best use these two talented Elves" Johnny Theatre from Hard Graft has said, " I wanted to do Jack and the Beanstalk, but neither are tall enough."
