It's her last day at primary school and her last chance to show she's more than just the shy new girl. If only her Mum could watch her race, but that looks about as likely as her team winning gold.
This funny, heart-warming musical follows four students and their teacher, Mr Budge, in a story of falling over, getting up and carrying on. With original music and dance, Polka's feel-good musical brings an extra-special sports day to life this summer.
Cheer and cry for your favourite team as they compete at cycling, archery, the high jump, gymnastics and plenty of running! Is it really the taking part that matters? Join us and find out...
