Polka Children's TheatreThe Polka Theatre closes for a 7.5 million pound refurbishment project on 17th February 2019 and reopens in summer 2020.

The Wimbledon-based Polka Children's Theatre is one of the few venues in the UK which produces and directs work solely for kids. Opened in 1979, the Polka has two theatre spaces and is aimed at children aged 0 to 13. Everything from dramas and comedies are shown here, as well as adaptations of popular stories like We're Going on a Bear Hunt. Some of the works are aimed at children as young as 9 months old. If your baby does start challenging the actors for the audience's attention during the performance, you can simply take them out of the auditorium where you can continue to watch the show on the monitor provided. The Polka offers plenty of family programs and as well as out-of-school clubs and summer schools. Parents will appreciate the child-friendly cafe and a playground complete with a Wendy House and giant cat.
