I feel very lucky to have this place nearby. There are often great shows, artistically interpreted. My children always enjoy. They also love the café which is very sweet.

We have been regulars at Polka for the last 11 years. It used to be excellent but it is note of a ‚hit and miss’ nowadays. The Polka cast is nowhere as prefessional as Unicorn or Rose theatre ones. What really let the Polka down...More

I haven't been disappointed by a single production we have seen at this dedicated children's theatre. Excellent acting, friendly staff, magical venue with outdoor space... I will always remember the trips we have taken here. We most recently saw The Borrowers, which was really fantastic.
