"Any boots?"
 
   Tony Hancock once did a sketch in which he was forced to play Father Christmas. It was noticed immediately by his sceptical audience, that he was wearing his slippers which he explained was 'because his boots were at the boot-makers'..

I relate this story because at the moment it is looking as though the lead in our school ballet production (opening today week), will be wearing HIS slippers with his full Regency gear -as the boots (for various unavoidable reasons) have yet to arrive!

Is there anyone out there able to sell/lead/hire a pair of size 10 ballet boots (any colour) and if I can push my luck for the Mazurka, a pair of size 7 ballet boots?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as to be able to practice in the boots before a regional TV 'appearance' on Tuesday next, would be 'advisable'. Thanks
