“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

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.

“Ancient Abbey Buildings come theatre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

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.

“A wonderful theatre to inspire the young...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

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 and engaging. The theatre itself, from the large reception area to the auditorium is a comfortable welcoming space and I highly recommend a visit.

“Fantastic theatre, you should take your kids here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

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 good, this is definitely not some ham production with sub stander actors. The theatre has had major funding and is a very modern building in a great location, afterwards we walked on the river edge looking at the city, Tower of London and Tower Bridge. They direct you to park in an NCP parking site which is about a mile away at least but I found one that was much nearer and cheaper just off Lafone street. I loved going here and would like to go back as soon as possible, a top drawer place.

“"The Unicorn Tooley Street for Excellent Children's Theatre"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

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 the play!
The Unicorn performs in their new Lonodn home in two auditoria plays for children all year round .Unicorn is somewhere the chidren will love visiting.
