Teddy Bear Collection

Teddy Bear Collection

After 18 years in Stratford-upon-Avon, the award-winning Teddy Bear Museum moved from Stratford-upon-Avon, to a new home in London - here at Polka.  A selection of bears from this unique collection is now on display in the theatre foyer.

Each year Polka introduces 100,000 children and their families to the magic of theatre. It is a place where the whole family comes together in a fantastic child-friendly environment – watching plays in the theatre, reading in the book corner, playing in the playground, enjoying the café, and now - meeting teddy bears from the Teddy Bear Museum, including Paddington, Sooty, Fozzie, Pudsey and Winnie the Pooh.

We are bidding farewell to our lovely collection of teddy bears, which has been on loan to us from our wonderful Patron, Gyles Brandreth.  The bears are moving to a new home at Newby Hall in Yorkshire. The last chance to see them at Polka will be Sunday 16 August, 2015 and they will magically reappear in a new display at Newby Hall in 2016.
