Of course Polka! It's unique and much loved by local families and schools. Top quality professional theatre for young audiences in a delightful venue full of fun things to do.

Where else can you take your 3 year old for amazing theatrical experiences? :)

I took my daughters, now in their thirties, from the age of two, and now I started going with my granddaughter. We have always enjoyed its productions and atmosphere. The playground is perfect for small children and the sweet cafeteria where you seat in the pretend train is great fun. Every child should visit the Polka Theatre!


Recently saw Chester Tuffnut at the Polka Theatre. The show was entertaining and interactive. I would recommend this show and The Polka Theatre.

The Polka Theatre is a great space and very child-friendly, which is the market it is aiming to cater for.  Although the plays appear to be hit-and-miss, the theatre itself is a great environment.  The facilities are good and the staff are very welcoming to all theatre-goers - young and old.

Great shows for kids (as well as grown ups) and a brilliant cafe. If you;ve got kids you should try it

I saw Peter Pan here accompanied by a 9 year old girl a few weeks ago and we both had such a great time. Lovely theatre and the show was simply magical. Enjoyable for adults as well as children. I thought the actors were all amazing, but I especially enjoyed Jonny Weldon's performance. Can also recommend the cute café which is very child friendly and lovely staff.
