Polka Theatre for Children Reviews
Went to see In the Winter Wood with some friends and our kids, age range from 3 - 8. What a fantastic solo production. Our kids were transfixed and talked about this magical experience for days... more »
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. more »
A really pleasant theatre. We went here as a large group to see wind and the willows. It is a very child friendly theatre. The theatre has beautiful features inside and areas for children to play in or sit and read. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The show was absolutely brilliant! Very interactive and fun!
Lovely children theater. Good selection of shows, pleasant place.
