HMV in Workington will be hosting a production of 'Elf' this festive season. 

The store will be running the event on the same day as the Workington Christmas Light Switch On, Saturday, November 26. 

Freya Chalmers, a sales assistant at the store, said: "We're getting the local theatre groups into the shop because they're putting on a production of 'Elf the Musical' in a few weeks. 

"They'll come into the store to perform a taster for the upcoming musical. 

"We're all excited and it's the first time I've organised an event, I'm nervous but also looking forward to it.

"I was just thinking that it would be cool in the run-up to Christmas and it's the same day as the Christmas light switch on so hopefully we'll get some good footfall in the store. 

"It will hopefully be good marketing for both them and us."
