Description

Specialties

Polka Theatre is one of the few venues in the UK which is dedicated to producing and presenting world-​class theatre for children aged 0 — 13 years.

Polka’s welcoming building is a resource for local people with its friendly café, worry-​free foyer with big toys and a book corner, a charming garden and a playground complete with a Wendy House and giant cat. It is playful, fun and interactive — Polka stimulates even the biggest child’s imagination and is a magical place where you can share a special moment with your children.

Polka welcome families and young people to experience these facilities for free even if you’re not here to see a show. You can pop into play any time the building is open.

History

Established in 1979.

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.

Polka is first and foremost a local theatre, loved by the people of Wimbledon and the wider London community, but enjoys an international reputation, known the world over as a pioneer of theatre for children, consistently setting the standard and raising audience’s expectations.
