Since the doors opened in 1979, this unique venue has been entertaining children with resonant, engaging and exciting theatre.Over 100,000 children a year come to Polka and are inspired, stimulated and engaged by theatre, often for the first time. Polka strives to stir the emotions, spark the imagination and, most of all, entertain. Its two theatre spaces, the Main Theatre and the Adventure Theatre are designed especially for children so that their first taste of theatre is welcoming and relevant. It’s also a free resource, where local families can ‘pop in to play’ - to explore our exhibition areas, dressing-up and reading corners, our playground, garden and cafe. « less

I have been often to Polka Theatre quite often with my kids - the most recent play we watched here was Red Riding Hood which was thoroughly enjoyed by my 3 yr old boys.
