The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals


Elf tells the story of Buddy, who after realising he doesn't fit in with the other elves, sets out to find a place where he belongs – in search of his dad in New York City.

In the Big Apple, Buddy sees that the world is seriously lacking in Christmas spirit, which causes Santa all kinds of problems. So with the help of a beautiful department store elf (Zooey Deschanel), Buddy tries to teach his dad and the world the true meaning of Christmas spirit and to prove to everyone that Santa really does exist.
