I had a lovely visit to the Unicorn with my daughter and grandson (11 mths old) to see 'Scrunch' a play for 0-2 years. I was sure my grandson would enjoy the experience, but wasn't sure he'd 'watch' a play. However, he was mesmerised. The little theatre room was draped with white curtains all around, and had a lovely atmosphere.... More

The staff at this theatre were so polite and really helpful. The theatre was clean and well presented and I would definitely return. However we went to watch Nosferatu, the 2 actors put a lot of effort into the performance with all the lighting and props but I just found it very odd and I would not recommend that particular...

My daughter had been to this theatre before, so knew it was suitable for the little ones to scoot right there (under Tower Bridge) from Butlers Wharf, the nearest easy car parking. The play we saw was performed in the little downstairs theatre. Tickets can be booked in advance, but once inside the theatre, people sit wherever they want to... More

A fun day out with our granddaughter. So much better than Peppa pig style shows. A tip, if you're not in a large group. A few minutes in advance, take the elevator up to the theatre and wait for opening. You'll get great seats.

This medieval masterpiece is a wedding, arts and social centre but it is not being used with any imagination - the theatre is interesting but tatty - I hope the productions are better than the facilities.

Going to the theatre can often be a daunting process, not least with a child but the Unicorn with its special emphasis towards children provides a safe, exciting space to inspire kids for the rest of their lives. I visited last week to see Hannah with my 9 year old. What a great show which looked fantastic and was exciting... More

I went en famille because one of my four daughters wanted to see a play for her birthday treat. We took a friend of the birthday girl with us and we watched "Mr Holgado". The Theatre is simply charming with a lovely little cafe serving home made delights. The production was excellent and the quality of the acting was exceptionally... More

The founder of the Uncorn Carlyl Jenner believed in no compromise when it comes to theatre for young people . The Unicorn's recent production "The Snow Queen" set in India is a stunning production with all the ingredients that make excellent children's theatre .My chidren were enthralled by this production .They were dancing down Tooley Street in pure pleasure after...
