Hannah loves gorillas, but she’s never seen a real one... 



It’s the night before Hannah's birthday and something amazing is about to happen. When her toy gorilla comes to life, dressed in her father’s coat and hat, they embark on a thrilling, moonlit adventure.

Meet the world’s friendliest gorilla this summer as Polka's sell-out show returns. The classic award-winning picture book by former Children’s Laureate Anthony Browne comes to life with puppetry, music and a giant sprinkling of Polka magic!
