Help us continue to light up the imagination in children

"For the past 35 years, Polka has been a pioneer in creating inspirational, unforgettable theatre for children in an environment where they, and their imaginations, can run free.  We work with the best writers and artists in the UK to produce world-class theatre for over 90,000 children and families every year. We want every child to experience live theatre and benefit from the creative learning activities we offer. We make every effort to ensure all our work is accessible to children with special educational needs and those from disadvantaged areas of the community.

Polka holds a special place in the hearts and minds of all those who come here. For many children, Polka is where theatre begins. Thank you in advance for helping us continue to introduce the wonders of live theatre to new generations of children and their families."

Ticket sales account for only a third of what we need to keep our doors open and our programme of inspiring productions for children and creative learning activities alive. As a registered charity, we need to raise a further £300,000+ each year.
