Join us in Polka’s Adventure Theatre for an enchanting new show created especially for children aged 2 – 5.

Mia loves her Grandad very much. He lives far away where it’s always warm and hot, but now he’s coming to visit and Mia’s excitement is growing.  

3 sleeps... 2 sleeps... 1 more sleep... HE’S HERE! 

Finally Grandad arrives with stories and games to set Mia’s world alight. Hop like a kangaroo, take tea with duck and jump aboard a magic carpet ride to the icy North Pole as Grandad, Mia (and Teddy Too) share an unforgettable adventure to wherever their imaginations take them. 

Following the sell-out success of Gorilla in 2013 and Too Many Penguins in 2012 we transform Polka’s Adventure Theatre into a magical winter garden full of sparkly fairy lights, where children can sit on the soft grass to be part of the fun and games.  

With gentle humour and original music this heart-warming story celebrates the special place grandparents have in young children’s lives.
