Mr Magnolia has only one boot.

Mrs Armitage has only one bike.

Patrick has a magical violin.

But the very best of all... is when they ALL JOIN IN!

A musical extravaganza!

What’s the best way to have fun this summer? All join in! Come to Polka for an irresistible mix of songs, stories and dancing, celebrating the work of Quentin Blake. Rhyme, rhythm and colourful characters all combine in this musical extravaganza inspired by some of Blake's well-loved stories including All Join In, Mr Magnolia, Mrs Armitage on Wheels and Patrick.

And when we say All Join In we mean it – it’s a toe-tapping, sing-along show, with plenty of chances for you to take part in the fun!

Running time: approx. 1 hour 30 minutes including interval

Supported by Russell-Cooke Solicitors
